For the past year, my Damon and I have been dealing with Laura Beth and problems with her blood count. we would go to the amazing Dr. C about every 2 months to see if her blood count was getting better. I am NO doctor by any means, so I can't give you the whole low down. However, her lymphocytes were being slightly elevated which is a sign of a chronic infection or something. You can only imagine the thoughts going through my head. Around here there have many too many children with life threatening diseases and I was trying not to think the worst. Anyways, the first of August brought us back to having her blood check and it was still elevated. Dr. C felt like we should see a specialist just to be sure. Therefore, we have been trying to find pediatric hemotologists in the Memphis and Nashville area. Once we found some, we came to find out that even those were specialized in certain areas (who knew?) and those we had found may not be able to help us. This morning, though, Dr. C went by to see Mom and told her the good news - Laura Beth's blood is fine!!! He talked to one of the specialized specialists and he saw no reason for her being brought in for further investigation!!! Praise God!! We have brought this to Him over and over for a year now, and He takes care of us, once again!
Thanks to all who have been praying for our dear LB and please take the time to thank our Heavenly Father for blessing us this day!
