But I couldn’t because we haven’t had internet, phone or cable in over 24 hours due to a very , very bad storm last night. I had an electrician and a bunch of boys at my house all morning playing and then went to Van’s pool this afternoon, so I wasn’t able to run to Panera to get some WI-FI connections so I could tell you what I’ve been wanting to tell you!!
JJ’s doctor called last night at 8pm and left a message for JJ to call him back at his office number. Then he added, “But it’s nothing urgent. Again, it’s NOTHING urgent.” So, we translated that to mean that “the biopsy results aren’t anything to be concerned about” – and that translation was confirmed at 4:30pm today!
The doctor said JJ has “non-alcoholic fatty liver disease” and that is good news. There is no tissue damage, no sclerosis. He just has too much fat in his liver so he needs to lose 15lbs and cut back on fats. Which will be our next prayer journey. But let’s just celebrate for now!
The doctor said he’d fight hard to make sure the insurance company notes that there is no reason to be concerned and hopefully that will bring the rates down significantly. That is our prayer because we need to increase his life insurance as we increase the size of our family.
Girlfriends, thank you so much for “being there” with us. Truly, you have been like next-door-neighbors the way you have cared, checked on, and prayed for us. I know God heard you and answered your prayers. We have had such peace while we waited, which we fully attribute to the gift of praying friends and family. So, from the bottom of our Swope hearts, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
