some good news

We had our regular appointment today at Sutter. Both Carmen and I went because we were anticipating a discussion with the doctor about a recent bone scan of Isaiah's back. I was, frankly, expecting hard news because I had sensed serious concern in the words and expressions of the technician who did the scan last week. And while there are still a few more tests that need to be done, and Isaiah's compression fractures are a significant and long-term issue, the GOOD NEWS is that the DEXA scan results show an increase in bone density. Maybe the broccoli and calcium supplements are paying off.

We remain very grateful for your prayers for wisdom, grace, and health. Thank you!

Here are some phone-photos of Sienna making sure Isaiah's teeth look good.
