Wonderful Biopsy Report!

Yesterday, Daniel and I went down to La Paz on the bus to meet with the doctor to discuss the biopsy results. The report could not have been better considering everything. There is no cancer; and Daniel's emflamed liver is not even caused by an infection. Basically, what happened is that Daniel's gallbladder went bad. There are some tubes that go from the gallbladder to the liver and because the swollen gallbladder was pushing against them, they plugged up. This backed all of the bile back up into the liver causing Daniel's liver to also swell and causing the severe jaundice.
The gallbladder (source of the problems) has been removed. Therefore, the doctor said for Daniel to take a month to rest, eat, drink a lot, and just give the liver some time to heal, and he should be as good as new! We just thanked and praised the Lord for the wonderful report! How gracious and wonderful He is to us!
Daniel's case was very complicated and the doctor still does not understand all of it. Someone with Daniel's condition should have been in severe pain, but Daniel never was. In fact, the scans and Daniel's symptom's pointed to cancer. This prompted the doctor to want to get inside him right away and check things out. The doctor told us yesterday that if Daniel hadn't gotten in when he did and let the problem continue for even another week, he would have been in very bad shape.
The Lord directed everything so clearly! I look forward to sharing in the next posts some of the many things He taught me through this trial. Right now, my job is to keep Daniel's glass full of water, cook him whatever he wants, keep the children "somewhat" quiet so Daddy can rest :), and just thank the Lord for answering prayer! He is so good!

  25. Dear Jaynee,

    I am so overjoyed to hear the wonderful news! I and my family were blessed to actually hear about it yesterday from Amber and Stephen. In fact, when they called us, we were with our church family (all of whom have been praying fervently for you), so we were able to share the good news with them as well. We all thanked the Lord together immediately, as my father led us in prayer, thanking the Lord for the wondrous things He has done! How happy I am for the relief you must feel as a family! Thanks be to God for His gentle acts of mercy and grace. . . . Our prayers continue to be with you.

    Love in Christ,

    Scarlett K.

    P.S. Daniel is already looking so much better! :) We will pray he will get plenty of rest and recover quickly! :D

  40. I was on vacation during this great trial your family has gone through. I'm so grateful to see this good report and will remember you all in my prayers during this recovery period.

  41. How wonderful to read this post...Since being introduced to your blog recently, I have been trying to check in as well as pray for your husband's recovery.

  42. This news made our day. We are rejoicing in God's goodness with you.

  43. YAY! YAY! YAY! My bf had a very sick gb, several years ago...and it apparantly went undetected for YEARS...and masked itself as "feminine issues," including endometriosis--so for years, she battled a battle that shouldn't have been fought....and she was a different person, as soon as they took that sick sick gb out! So, reading this--I REJOICE that there is NO CANCER, but am not surprised that poor Daniel was that sick, b/c of it....it's a little "odd" how a "useless" organ, like the gb, can make one so sick--and yet, we CAN live w/o it......(I know it's not useless, but it is one we can do w/o.)

    Off to read the most recent comment...and doing the happy dance, that things are looking up!

  44. Jaynee, you look really pretty in that picture.

  45. What wonderful news!

    It is awesome to read about God's grace and how He worked out the details.

    I only get to check your blog every once in awhile and was wondering how things were going. This was great to read.
