Miracle Ear

Well, how about a little "what what" for God! Tonight in this house we're raisin' the roof in praise for our Lord, who truly "satisfied our desires with good things!!"

A few weeks ago I began to feel that Will was responding better to sound when he didn't have his hearing aids on; particulary when I would sing to him he would just light up. I mentioned it to his audiologist and she said that it was time to do another hearing test anyway. Today was the day, and let me just say that God blew the socks off of Will's audiologist!

Will's hearing has significantly improved!! This definitely was not expected by any of the professionals that work with him. In fact, it has improved so much that we will only have to wear one hearing aid now! His left ear has improved to just a borderline mild hearing loss (thus no hearing aid needed). His right ear is also improved but still not quite good enough to hear the high frequency speech sounds consistently.

Below you can see the results. The green line is where his hearing loss was back in April. The red and blue lines are where his loss fell today. The red line is his right ear (the ear we will aid), and the blue line is his left.


With great shame, I must admit that Ben and I had fallen for Satan's scheme hook-line-and-sinker. We were not trusting God to heal Will; we thought our job as "good Christians" was just to trust that God had a plan for our family with Will's hearing loss. Obviously so. While we were "trusting away," Ben's dad and many other people continued to pray for healing. PRAISE OUR GLORIOUS LORD!!

I am so blown away by God's love for me and my sweet one. Just as I want to give my children good things, so it is with our Father. He knew the desires of our hearts even when we did not speak them to him. Oh, the goodness of God's grace overwhelms me. Please praise Him with me tonight, and if you were one of the secret prayer warriors - THANK YOU!

We've already talked today, but I just wanted to add my accolades (sp?) to our great and wonderful God in this public place, for the glory is ALL to Him! He is the great physician and also the fabricator of these amazing bodies. Praise Him that He has worked this MIRACLE for little Will! The scientists/doctors can advise on the laws of nature, but who can advise us of what great things our Lord will do when we ask?!?
