Although it hasn’t been analyzed by the physician yet, we have a preliminary reading back. There appear to be no vascular abnormalities, tumors or reasons for the low oxygen saturations that she frequently has. Yesterday doctors told us they were looking for damaged lung tissue that may require invasive surgery to remove part of the lung. We are praising the Lord that this does not look like it will be necessary. Certainly a relief!! However, this leaves us again asking the question “why”?!!!
Our doctor friend who gave us the report was very gentle in her evaluation, but is advising that the next thing to test for is cystic fibrosis. Its easy to become overwhelmed by the possible “what ifs”. This precious child is a constant reminder to surrender fears and anxiety before the Lord. His strength…perfect in our weakness!
Thank you all for praying us through her CT scan today. Keep lifting her up as we seek to discover and treat her condition. How blessed I feel to mother this special little girl.
