Ephesians 3:20 "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us"

So the immune level we have been waiting on came back. Children's ran this lab and was to send the info to Duke. Please read the email I got from Dr. Markert's head nurse, who is also a good friend, today below:

Dear Sarah,

I spoke with Dr. Rao this morning about Caleb's labs. The IgG level was reported at 444, which is low but there was a disclaimer that they had "insufficient sample to properly run the test so the result may not be valid. " So basically, it doesn't really tell us anything. However, I had frozen away some serum from the blood sent to us so I will have them run an IgG on it here and we'll see what we get. I think they run the test on Mon Wed Fri so I may have some results by the middle of next week. So sorry, I know the waiting is killing you but I want to make sure we have a valid result before we act on it either way.

So...here we are...I did some research and the normal range that I found was 620-1400. I pray that the result from Children's is wrong and that his IgG (major antibody found in the blood that fights infection) level is not really that low.

I will post the Duke IgG level as soon as we get it!

God Bless you all!!

God Bless Caleb!!

Oh Sades, I know this is so tough. I am so sorry it is so hard to get competent people to complete what seems to be some of the simplest tasks and I know how much you are hoping for positive results. We are all praying for you (and with you I know) all. God Bless!! Miss you! Love you!
