Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. Luke 18:1

I copied this verse from Kelly’s Korner this morning, because it pretty much summed up our day yesterday. I know it’s hard to believe, but we got even more great news last night. My perinatologist called while I was in choir practice, so I called him back once I got in the car. He has met with the pediatric surgeon, and the chief doctor over the NICU, and they are very encouraged at the thought this may very well be Pentalogy of Cantrall! Dr. K told Dr. D that he operated last week on a case similar to this and was very successful. But Dr. K needs more information to make an exact diagnosis, so I am going for a fetal MRI to get an exact picture of what Faith’s little body looks like.

Dr. D was quick to say that this prognosis would still be guarded, but far less grim than the Amniotic Band Syndrome. He said he didn’t want to give us any false hope until we could get the MRI. I just told him that God is proving everyday that He, and only He, is in control. If indeed we go to the MRI to find out our diagnosis remains the same, we will be confident that we have done everything we can to be informed, and we will be thankful for the opportunity to gather more information. I will update once I know when the MRI will take place.

Thank you to each of you for your continued prayers and words of encouragement. This is a true testament to God’s power, and the power of prayer! I hope that you can see how real our God is, and that He is MIGHTY!!!
