A brief update
Last Friday I had an EMG test done. I'm not gonna lie it was just plain awful. I have bruises from all the needle injections :) The doctor said that he only found traces of the Myotonia in two areas of my body. He said it wasn't wide spread enough to get a confirmation of the disease. He would like me to do some genetic testing. This requires approval from my insurance. It is a blood test that needs to be read in a special lab. I left the appointment more confused and frustrated that we still did not have a solid answer and that it is going to take 6 more weeks until we know more information. The planner in me wanted answers so that I could move forward with the next steps. I quickly remembered that God is in control and know without a doubt that he will be building my patience and character through this long wait. I hate how I quickly forget how faithful he has been in my life and has always done amazing things. I forget to ask him for total healing. I certainly know he has the ability and he can choose to if he desires. I have requested to see another neurologist to get a second opinion. I could not get into see him until next month. I laugh because I'm always telling my kids to be patient and I often struggle with it so much more. I know I will eventually get answers so for now I will rest in the fact that I know my God is in control and he is walking with me every step of the way. Thanks for all your sweet words of encouragement and prayers.
