The doctor has been informing us that these situations are worded as "failure to thrive" just because the child isn't following the growth curve. We have even taken a cystic fibrosis test (thankfully negative). We were also told to call an interventionist who would help us watch Benjamin.
This last visit came and as usual I had a prayer in my heart that perhaps this time we could hear some good news about his growth and health. We took him in and they weighed him and I couldn't believe my eyes! Benjamin had jumped 5 ounces in two weeks, which is an amazing jump since he hasn't grown very much in a long time. Then they told us the C.F. test was negative, and his wheezing (something he also had at the previous appointment) was gone. I was filled with gratitude and felt like I was walking in the clouds. We will still have to watch his growth, but I am so thankful to have at least one happy visit for Benjamin (although he did have to get his shots, poor boy)!
"Prayer becomes more meaningful as we counsel with the Lord in all our doings (see Alma 37:37). . . . We are promised that if we pray sincerely for that which is right and good and in accordance with God's will, we can be blessed, protected, and directed (see 3 Nephi 18:20; D&C)."
