Gifted Hands, a movie about Dr. Ben Carson, Wyatt's Neurosurgeon

Wyatt's Neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson is a wonderful person and a movie was just came out about his life. Carson is played by Cuba Gooding Jr. The movie premiered on TNT Saturday night, but will be airing through out the month. Click here for more information.

I remember when Wyatt had his head bleed when he was only about 15 days old... he was still very sedated and intubated, so he had no voice and was very sleepy. I had no idea what the outcome would be and it was very scary and if you search on the internet for IVH Grade 4, it is very scary.. I remember two things that Dr. Carson told me... to pray and that God was good. Each time we have an appointment with Dr. Carson, he is so relaxed, does not rush, and answers all our questions. It is exciting that a movie was made about him! We TiVo'd the movie so we will watch it this week... I went out with my neighborhood girl friends on Saturday night to see an 80's band... The Reagan Years. They were great!!!

We don't get TNT but my mom said she taped it. I can't wait to see the movie. Wyatt sure is lucky to have Dr. Carson on his care team!
