Pig Tails and Piggy Paint

Looking quite adorable in her new pink Piggy Paint . . .
(Thank you, Lydia!)
 and her two very cute pig tails . . .
Brielle and Mommy went to Seattle today for her long-awaited specialist appointment.
We were so glad to hear from this very nice doctor about what to expect
concerning her diagnosis and upcoming treatment plan.
He confirmed that she will not be able to use the necessary medicines for a few years,
And he relieved some of my worries when he said that it is not likely that she will show much in the way of symptoms during this time. 
These were the two main things we learned,
although he did tell us a bit about the medicines; 
how they are administered and for how long;
their side-effects;
and percentages of effectiveness/cure rates. 
It's hard to think about right now  . . .
so while we wait some more,
 we can pray that our Great Physician might see fit to heal her little body before her next blood test!
"The Lord is near.  Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.  Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.  The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you." 
Philippians 4:5b -9

I'm so far behind on your blog! Can't believe how many posts you have written that I need to catch up on. But I'm so glad I read this one first!

Sweet little Brielle; glad the doctor had a good report on her for now. Our family certainly knows the scary anticipation of doctors' diagnostic and informational visits, and when you come out knowing that all is well right now, that's everything! I pray for that sweet little girl and your family each time I go to the throne. Love you. ♥

Will be so nice we can see Brielle's cute face. WE will keep all of you especially Brielle's health in our prayers. It is always a huge concern when a little one is not totally healthy. Much love, Meemom
