Genetic testing

As I walked up to Hamed’s bed today, his doctor and a nurse were giving the grandmother some paperwork to sign for getting a genetic test done with Hamed. The test should give the doctors some clarity about Hamed’s eventual blindness and his very thin skull. A few minutes later they came back and took blood from him for the testing. The nurse explained to me that this probably won’t give them exact answers of how to treat him, but it will help understand his condition and highlight some things to look out for. Besides the genetic testing, Hamed is doing alright after his surgery and is recovering well.

Please pray for him and everything his future holds. Whether the genetic test brings some results or not, we want to pray for God’s protection over this little boy.
