Another Bone Marrow Aspiration and Biopsy tomorrow/Please pray



Today Huatzin took Josiah in for labs! Hooray, daddy toughened up to do it. ( He is typically pretty squeamish) I would have but I am still feeling pretty weak, which is so unlike my other deliveries. This ole gray mare, she ain't what she used to be! ;-) lol. The bummer is that two doctors told him information about Josiah and the procedure that will be done, and results of other tests, and you know men are not big on details. ;-( I have been trying to pry the specifics out of him.

Basically they told him more of the same, that they are hoping it's a virus but that the Bone biopsy and aspiration will tell us if he has improved or gotten worse. They also said they are sending his new results to a "special" Specialist! Apparently he or she specializes in Aplastic Anemia and other blood related disorders. They must be really expert in their field, because from what I understand, CHOC already has 7 doctors that are trained in both oncology and hematology and 4 that are strictly hematology specialists that are looking over his file. Praise God we are here in the US and so near to CHOC and not in the bush somewhere. We count our blessings) I am positive we won't get the results back right away. It took days to get the other results back so I expect the same. I will take Josiah as I really want to be there for him.

Lord PLEASE do not let it come back Aplastic anemia. Lord you came for the sick and we ask you to heal Josiah and that the results would come back as just recovering from a virus. Regardless of what you choose for us, We ask that you'd be glorified in everything we do and that your glorious light would be reflected in every situation. Anyway, that's the update for now. When we have more info, we'll post it. Thank you for all of your love and support. I am so sorry I haven't been quick to thank you individually, but we are so encouraged by your kindness and concern for our family. Huatzin, & Alida, Canaan, Elijah, Anaiah, Josiah, Hezekiah Rodriguez

Sweet mommy, in all that you are going through, I have no idea how you found time to splash me with sweet words on my blog. But thank you.

May the Lord simply drench you in His love and goodness tonight.

Hugs from this mommy's heart to yours,
