revisiting the sick leg

You may recall that I was concerned that my children would catch the flu and/or strep from me recently but that the only thing that got sick was Biruk's leg.
I had a great laugh about that when it happened, however it turns out Biruk's leg really is sick.
In the past month, Biruk has had x-rays, a bone scan, and an MRI. The x-ray showed nothing, the bone scan showed something, and the MRI really showed something.
What specifically, is inconclusive at this time but seems to be infection or cancer. We are now being referred to a specialist at the University of Chicago.
I am confidant the we will be in good hands at the hospital, knowing that we are always in the best hands of God.
I don't know what it is, but I am so glad that Biruk is here with us so we can find out. Please pray for guidance and healing and I will keep you posted as we learn more.

crossing my fingers for an infection. I cannot believe I just said that...but it's better than the alternative!

Meg, we are also hoping for infection. Weird to say, I know.

I thank God that Beruki is in America where he can receive the best care and that he would have doctors who can investigate! Prayers for his leg, and your family!
Love,
Maria

That is why he was sent to you. To be taken care of and loved.
Whatever it is, you and Scott are
meant to be there for him.

Praying for healing! Isn't it strange how much relief you can have that at least he is sick HERE with YOU? I hope you get answers quick and just the right treatment.
