I wanted to post and let everyone who has asked or prayed  know what is going on with Olive.  Yesterday, she fell  in the kitchen and hit the back of her head on the ground.  It wasn’t a massive fall or anything.  She was crying, I picked her up and when I did, her eyes rolled back in her head and she went completely limp.  I laid her back down on the ground.  She has done this a couple of other times but it was very mild and I just thought she’d had the wind knocked out of her.  But this time, she didn’t move at all.  She just stared off and didn’t make a single peep, no movement, nothing.  I ran, called 911 and when I was getting off of the phone with the man she finally rolled over on her own and stood up and started crying.  The whole incident lasted approximately 45 seconds.  They came and checked her out and of course by the time they got here she was acting completely normal (and by that I do include waving at the ambulance that is driving in to see her!).  No signs of concussion, nothing weird at all.

Of course, now guilt is kicking in that we’ve not taken her somewhere the other times but I truly can say it was like she’d had the wind knocked out.  But this time, both BJ & I felt like God was telling us to take her somewhere.  So today, she went to her doctor who agreed that no, this is not normal.  A baby should be able to fall the distance she did and not have that sort of response.  Olive has been referred to Children’s Mercy Neurology and now we wait to hear back from them for an appt. for her.

I’m not sure what I’m thinking.  Of course, we are deeply deeply concerned.  But I also feel a peace.  Tonight the two men in our family prayed over her and I was so moved.  We’re just asking Jesus that there be a definite answer and for it to be nothing major–we’d covet your prayers along with us.  so many hurting children in this world, so many requests to lay at His feet.  And now we lay Olive…
