Praise and Prayer....Part II
A miracle happened today. Now, it might not be the kind of miracle that everyone drops their jaw and gets goosebumps over, but it's a miracle, nonetheless. If you read the post from yesterday, you know Karl tested positive for tuberculosis, but it was inactive, meaning he was not contagious, just more susceptible to getting TB if there was ever exposure again. The doctor told Karl when he asked for a retest that it was highly unusual for a second negative test after an initial positive, usually the results were even stronger, but she would order it anyway. Here's the miracle: just recently, the children's pastor's wife tested positive for TB and had a second test run which came out negative. Our doctor was pretty insistent that we just shouldn't think much about all that would be required to get "cleared," but to just go ahead and do it. However, because of what happened to Stacy, Karl was strong about desiring another test......and guess what? The test was NEGATIVE! NO TB! And here we would have gone through nine months of drugs (and possible liver damage--not to mention the expense/time commitment for the monthly tests!) for nothing. Praise the Lord. Thank you to those who prayed already. God sure did answer!
