When Josh's doctor saw that his bilirubin was high, the possibilities were a little troubling. The doctor told me the best thing would be for him to have Gilbert's Syndrome. All other reasons for high bilirubin are pretty alarming.
Patrick and I were trying to be patient today waiting for the call back from the doctor. I was so glad when he called and said, "Yes, Joshua does have Gilbert's Syndrome!" So, what does his mean?
~Josh will always have a higher bilirubin (Hello built in tan!) It's just how his body is.
~When he gets sick we might notice a slight change in his skin coloring.
~He might have bouts of fatigue and lack of appetite.
~He will need to let future doctors know of this because he won't be able to take all medications.
~This DOES NOT harm his liver. Praise the Lord!!
So thankful for answered prayer! Thank you to all who prayed through with us. God is so good!
