Today our Genetic Doctor left a message on our answering machine, informing us that the results of Matthew's urine tests were back. We had expected this to take about a week, as we've previously experienced, so this was a surprise. We thank our Heavenly Father for so quickly relieving our tension, stress and fears for the Dr. reported that the urine test came back "completely normal" and there is "absolutely no possiblity of LPI."
I did not get a chance to talk to our doctor, but we have always been completely happy with the work he does, feeling confident that he knows what he is doing and has reviewed everything thoroughly. Since he so firmly stated his message on our machine we feel that we can move forward in confidence that we will not have to deal with another LPI PAP case. You can imagine what a relief this is to us.
We realize that this leaves us without an answer to our concerns about Matthew's breathing, but we feel some of our anxieties have been relieved and maybe even have some hope again that this is indeed just a lingering cold. We also realize that as time slowly ticks on, this is becoming less and less likely (but it's still not impossible.) At the same time, we're aware that just because we've ruled out our greatest fear, that doesn't mean that there is nothing wrong or to be feared. Once again, time will tell ... as we go through the various tests they think are necessary to get an answer. We pray it will not take long to receive this answer, or better yet, that we simply see him improve.
We thank you all for your prayers, e-mails and genuine concern, most of all we thank our Heavenly Father for the results we received today.
