Tests are finally scheduled!

OK... well... first, I will start by thanking everyone for their promises of prayer! Ana sat calm the entire time her feet were being casted for the braces! For those of you who know Ana, this is not "normal" behavior. Ana loves to work against doctors, therapist, and nurses. During the casting she was in a state of complete peace. Secondly, Ana's MRI's are scheduled for January 4th and January 7th. Her echocardiogram and appointment with the cardiologist are January 3rd. The sleep study will be January 17th and her hearing will be tested on January 11th. I am certainly looking forward to February when all these tests are behind us!
We are asking everyone to pray for:
  • The doctors, nurses, and therapists that will care for Ana in the next few weeks.
  • Ana's general health, she needs to be free of common sickness for the MRI's.
  • Ana's heart, the heart can be affected by the disease. The heart uses a lot of ATP (energy) to pump 24 hours a day and with Ana's defect she doesn't adequately make ATP.
  • All families world wide who have a child with a disease without an earthly cure. Pray that these families rest in God's hands and trust in His power to heal, comfort, and protect.

For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13

  1. I came across your site through word from a friend. I will be praying for your precious little girl. My friend mentioned that your son may have the same disorder...is that true? I will certainly be praying for your entire family as well. My heart breaks for you and your family. All I can do is tell you that I will pray!
