Prayers for Clint Please

Clint needs prayer for a health condition that developed very suddenly in conjunction with a virus. The local doc says it is "mystifying." After a consult with a friend who is a PA, we were advised to see a orthopedic doc asap and have some tests run. The condition could be very serious. Thank you very much for the prayers you lift on Clint's behalf.

2/1: Clint got into see his PCP today. He ordered blood work and is testing for some serious things it could be. Results are due in Wednesday. He also has an appointment with an orthopedic doctor on Thursday. Right now we are asking God for complete healing.

2/3: We were told one thing this morning and that was quite alarming warranting immediate, in depth, and expensive testing by a specialist. I did some research, and we asked some informed questions based on that research. The doctor then admitted these tests have a high rate of false positives, and he feels it is the respiratory virus Clint's had making the tests positive and causing the symptoms. He now says he feels it would be overkill to do additional testing at this time. Just a few informed questions took us from one drastic scenario to a possible simple answer. Please pray this is accurate and that Clint has complete healing. Thank you!

2/5: Clint's symptoms have spread to other joints and some pain has returned. We have requested a referral to a rheumatologist. Please keep praying for his pain and energy level.
