Jumping Through Hoops

Well, the past couple of days have been busy for me. I've been on the phone and email with therapists, doctors' offices, hospitals, herbalists, etc asking lots of questions and setting misc appointments. After some scheduling conflicts Joe finally had his first session with the Developmental Therapist (DT) yesterday and it went well. Mostly she played with him in strategic ways to try to get him to do this or that. Friday morning he will meet with the Physical Therapist and that afternoon he'll have a cardiac ultrasound to check out the murmur. I'm hoping to start taking him to our herbalist regularly to get him on a regular regiment of supplements. We have appointments set in April for his vision and hearing tests and one in June with a developmental specialist at Riley because the neurologist won't see us until he has had an evaluation by one of their doctors. Why can't they just use the evaluation that First Steps already did?!? Sigh.... I'm already tired of having to jump through hoops and such. I wish all this didn't have to be so complicated. Why can't we just get the help we need without all this?

it's so hard to know what to say-everything I want to say sounds like a cliche. Yada, yada, yada.
I would like to encourage you somehow...
a few years ago Mike and I went through a very difficult time in our lives. We just weren't sure we would make it-during that time I ran across a quote that helped, at least for a bit. I don't know where it came from, but I hope it encourages you:

God is too kind to do anything cruel...too wise to make a mistake...too deep to explain Himself.

Alongside that quote was a bible verse:

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable His judgements, and His paths beyond tracing out.
Rom. 11:33

Jesus bless you guys.
