Update. :)

Hi everyone! Just wanted to give you a quick update. I had an MRI done yesterday (creepy!) and the doctor called us a little while ago to let us know that everything was normal on it--that's a good thing. I think. :P. You see, if they had found a blocked or narrowed duct near the pancreas, they could've corrected it with surgery and I might not have dealt with it anymore after that...although I would have had to do surgery. Anyway, they came in early this morning and got four big old tubes of blood from me to send off for genetic testing. There's a chance that I might have a mutated gene or something like that. If that's the case, there's nothing they can do to fix it, but we will have figured out the cause of the pancreatitis. Then we would start figuring out how to deal with it long-term. And if the genetic testing comes back normal, well...we may just never know the cause. I'm still not allowed to eat...but the main doctor will be coming in soon, hopefully, and I will be begging her to let me try to eat. I am, however, allowed to drink clear liquids. Thank you for all the prayers! Remember the little brothers who were in the go/kart wreck? We took a walk around the hospital today and stopped by their rooms--and they were gone! I was a little disappointed, I'll adit, because I was hoping to talk to them a little more, but I'm so glad they were able to go home and that they're okay! I'm hoping to be out by Monday. God bless you and have a great day! Joy :)

I hoe all ends up well (and you are allowed to eat again! : ) ). Remember Proverbs 3:5-6.
