We've been healed!

Well, there is just good news all around!

We went to the pulmonary specialist this morning and the verdict is in. Bry has asthma! WOOO HOOO! We are so happy! Especially considering what we thought it was.

The mass of infection is almost completely gone. There is only a teesy bit left in the bottom of the lung.

They dosed him up with a heavy duty inhaler and some fun pills if he knows he's going to have an especially strenuous day. But other than all that, he's good to go! We go back in a month to get checked out.

The doc said it takes a few months to see how severe the asthma is and get it to where it's manageable.

We feel like a huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders. We get another chance.

On the one hand, it's good this happened. It has put priorities in order for Bry. There are things he wants to do now that he had been putting off. Things we value more now. But I am sure glad it's over!

It was lovely to hear the news. I waited on pins and needles all morning. I am sorry I am not a better friend. I never do much for you, and I suck.

I care though. Prayers and calls to the temple, even in couples prayer, and in discussions with P, we have worried about you two.

I am so grateful for the both you.

Thank you- for your light and verve.
