My nickname for our daughter Jordan is "Woogie". Don't ask me how I came up with it. It went from "My Little Muffin Girl" (not that she even likes muffins all that much-Josh was more the muffin lover)...to Woogie.
Yesterday my husband preached at a church about 35 miles from our home. We went through a beautiful city, and right at the turn before getting to the church, right at the crossroads, there was a restaurant called...you bet ya...Woogie's! We all laughed together. Imagine that, a restaurant with her lovie name! lol!!
David preached the Sun am and we sang together by request of the Pastor. We sang "Praise You in This Storm" before David preached the AM service. When we went back that evening for him to preach the PM service, Jordan sang with David and I before his evening sermon, "Pour My Love on You". Josh was a little shy about singing with us. ;) It was a beautiful time in the Lord...
Also, on the way to church for the evening service, I was sure to bring my camera to get that photo of "Woogies". (I've decided to keep the cam with me as much as possible these days. I'm also considering that 365 day challenge to take 1 photo a day, every day. I'll probably want to begin in Jan. Until then, I'll have fun getting a lot of practice in. ;)
Here is a photo of the moon I got on our way home from church last night. It was so so lovely that I had to capture it. We had stopped at Wally World, and I looked up, and thought...How BEAUTIFUL!
Today we had a follow up appointment for our daughter Jordan aka the Woogie. (I'm taking things in stages...you know...not worrying until the "next step".) At the appointment for Jordan's well check last week, the Dr. found that she seemed to have visible bulges during her spine check.
We went for X-rays this morning, and I got a call right before lunch from the Dr. to call her back right away. So I did, but the Dr. was at lunch. I spoke with the nurse who advised me that Jordan has significant scoliosis, and they are referring her to a specialist.
This afternoon, I began to first thank God for Jordan's healing, second...that we found out while she is 12, and third...that God is moving our family to a place where there is great medical Dr's and a school of medicine.
We do not yet know the percentage of the curvature of her scoliosis. I guess we will know more when we see the specialist. :)
You know, I was tempted to feel like such a bad mother. After finding this out, I can clearly see now...SO clearly that she is leaning, and one shoulder is lower than the other, one hip higher...I've never looked that close to her body since she is older and you know...for quite some time she baths/ showers herself, and is very modest and all. I've always taken her to her well checks, it was never brought up.
I'm learning that the curves can become more severe during growth of ages of 10-15. I'm thankful...like I said, she is 12. It is a blessing that they did find it soon. I reminded myself that these things can move quickly, and I am a very good mother in fact. :)
We would sure appreciate prayers for our sweet woogie. God has this all under control, and I trust Him for her healing, and for whatever that "next step" is for her in this. He is the great physician and I've experienced His healing power first hand. He is able! I pray God's healing on Jordan's spine, in Jesus name. In all things, God be glorified.
Psalm 121:1-3 (New International Version)
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
