Long before this day was spoken into existence, the Creator of this day knew we needed Him. As JH and I drove to the Hospital this morning (Eric left early for work and met us there) we sang songs. It only seemed fitting to sing a childhood favortie:
This is the day, this is the day, that the LORD has made, That the LORD has made
I will rejoice, I will rejoice and be glad in it, and be glad in it!
This is the day that the LORD has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it....
This is the day, this is the day, that the LORD HAS MADE!
We knew walking into those doors that God had plan, not matter the outcome He was not changing. Our day started out at the lung doc where they did breathing test, exams, and what nots. She looked at the X-rays and confirmed there was stuff of JH lungs (not cancer) some some type of infection. His breathing was not where it needed to be for someone his age and size so they are treating that as asthmatic for now. We will be doing more test for CF as well as immune diseases, but for now we wait.
After leaving there we grabbed a quick bite to eat and headed to the Heart Hospital. There JH had an echocardiogram. It lasted a REALLY long time, but he did great. A side note, when we told them they were gonna take pictures of the inside of his heart he said, "are they gonna see Jesus in there?" So sweet... We have yet to get the results back but were told they are gonna run them stat!
When we FINALLY got home after a grueling day, we got a call+ from the ENT who ordered the MRI/CT scan and he said that JH's sinus were completely blocked. His right side worse than this left and his nose was full for inflammation and infection. So we are going on strong meds for 3 weeks (we have already been on them for 3 weeks but he wants a six week dose) and then we will see about adenoid removal.
So in a nutshell we are waiting, praying, and resting at the feet of Jesus. It's a good hard place to be! And while I am here I will try and remain joyful. Bad things happen when you let the devil steal your joy!
Words cannot express how much we appreciate everyones prayers and concerns. The emails, facebook post, calls, and text, have completely overwhelmed us. And as soon as we know more we will pass on the information! Thanks again to everyone!
