Gratitude Challenge: Day 23



We went to the doctors office today to get CJ's test results.  He was suspected to have Hemachromatosis, a rare blood disorder; due to his high serum ferritin levels.  Luckily, all of the genetic testing came back negative.  Awesome!  The down side is that they don't know what's causing this ferritin level.  But, I'm focusing on the positive today, he doesn't have a genetic disorder that could be passed to our kids!
We feel really confident that this doctor, will exhaust himself to be sure that CJ's health is not something we need to worry about.  He takes everything and makes informed decisions, he's not just treating the diabetes, hypothyroid, high ferritin, high blood pressure; he's treating Chris and that sets my heart at ease.  Chris is not just a set of symptoms, he's a man with a wife and 4 kids who need him daily, hourly, minutely.  Thank you, God; for leading us to this doctor.

I will be praying for you husband. Thanks for sharing with us. I am so glad that the most recent test were negative though I understand all too well the need to have a diagnosis to the issue. (Hugs)

A good and caring doctor is hard to find. I'm glad CJ is in such good hands. I will keep this in my prayers. Thank goodness it wasn't hemachomatosis. I pray that whatever it is, it is not serious.

It is good to know that there are doctors out there who really care for their patients, we need more of them. I'm glad that test was negative.
