The Examination

We leave for Mayo tomorrow for a week of testing on our little William. The RPGR test has not come in yet and will not be in until the end of the month. One doctor is still convinced that this is what William has, even though my retina is healthy. I won't post a lengthy explanation, but it has something to do with me not being a carrier and William having a new mutation.
The possibility of needing to do an MRI upon our return is increasingly high. If nothing is found at Mayo that seems to be our only recourse.
We are so thankful for the many well wishes and prayers on our behalf. William continues to steal our hearts away moment by moment. He is funny and charming and sweet and tender. We are hopefuly that there will be answers for him at Mayo.

    Dearest William and family, my prayers for safe travel and Hope are with you. I will wait for your return hoping you have found answers to your many questions. As you know, you are not traveling "alone". Believe our Savior is sitting right next to William..anyone "fell" him?
    I know you must have mixed emotions but you have your loving family with you and together all will be well.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you,
    Jill A

  2. I will pray for you safe travel and that the Lord will guide the doctors while examining William. May the Lord Bless you!!

  3. I tried to post a comment earlier, but I don't think it went through!

    All of our prayers are being said so that you have some answers after your trip to Mayo. Have a safe and (hopefully) fruitful trip!
