The Brain, The Brain!

Benjamin and Jake went to Richmond on Friday and met with the Brain Doctor. It was a good visit. We learned that Ben has a brain abnormality, but it is nothing of great concern and it is a beautiful uniqueness in how our God has designed our Ben. He has a Chiara 1 Malformation. Basically where most peoples brain rounds out above the spinal column, Benjamin's brain comes to a triangular point. This could explain away his headaches. It is nothing of grave concern and the Doctor said that Ben probably shouldn't play any extreme contact sports like Football. Otherwise, his brain is normal and as it should be. We are thankful. The adrenal gland appointment is on Monday at 10 am. If you think of us, please pray for wisdom for me. We don't want to undergo unnecessary and potentially harmful tests for Benjamin if we don't need to.

Love that fearfully and wonderfully made Ben. The NFL will have to look elsewhere for greatness.
