but that was supposed to be the easy appointment

I took Bugaboo to the plastic surgeon referral for his cyst on his eye area.  A bump appeared around Thanksgiving, we saw our pediatrician in January, and just now got in to this doctor.  Today's appointment was supposed to be the easy one of the month - talk about when and how to remove the cyst.

But the plastic surgeon didn't like the location of the cyst combined with Bugaboo's previous vision and current developmental issues.  She wanted an MRI. She made a call to our pediatrician, who agreed with her . Then she came back and talked to me.

It could be a cyst. In which case the plastic surgeon will remove it. No huge deal.

It could be something with his nose bone.

Or it could be something with his brain/brain covering. In that case, we have bigger issues.

The Hubs, ever the optimist, believes it to be what we thought it was.
Me, the worrier, is fighting off the need to google every possible combination of words of what we may be dealing with here.

We meet with our pediatrician on Thursday for a regular appointment.  She will also tell us about the MRI date and such.

Praying for the best. Life certainly is an adventure.

  1. I'll be praying for the best too. My niece had a cyst above her eye last year (she was under 1 year old). It was easy to remove. Hope that's what's going on with Bugaboo! God's got this, no matter what.

  2. Oh Lord...I know that urge to Google! So hard to resist. I'm praying with you. For reals, friend. God will continue to grant you that perfect balance between rest and vigilance. In the end, He's in control. He will direct you and the Holy Spirit will instruct you. I truly believe that.
    Pick a couple of verses to carry you through the next few days while you wait for answers. God's Word is your strength and your weapon against any kind of worry. He is with you!!!
    I like "Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6,7

    Put it on an index card and quote it when needed!

    LOve you!!
