Genetic Testing

Qavah has an appointment to have her blood drawn next Monday for the genetics test that will be sent to the University of Washington. I don't know how long the results will take, but Qavah's doctor told us that she will set up an appointment to go over the findings as soon as she has the results. This is another giant step forward for Qavah's care. She takes everything in stride, but still prays at night to be healed. She has a very simple faith that I am sure delights the Lord. Last night as I was praying over her asking for clear test results she said, "Yes, and Jesus is going to help me!" There is no doubt in her mind that her help comes from a Higher Power.

I have had a bit of a sore throat for a couple of days. I am just going to relax today and drink plenty of fluids. Kathryn has the day off and has taken over the care of Qavah. I feel a long winter's nap coming on. I'm grateful for a warm house, old movies, soft blankets, hot tea, and a big sister for Qavah!
