Update on Chris

Dear Friends,
We have good news regarding Chris and his dental situation.  But first, thank you so much to everyone who prayed or offered suggestions or possibilities.  Our inbox was swamped with people offering to help connect us to good care.  We have the best prayer partners!!  We should apologize to those of you to whom we didn't respond personally - we were busy following leads and trying to sort out exactly what needed to happen (in between taking care of other details that also need attention while we're home).

It seemed that all the specialists wanted to see an x-ray before booking an appointment (which made us nervous because our time frames are short - but we needn't have been concerned).  So, we were able to schedule an x-ray, which revealed some good news.  Two dentists and Christopher's orthodontist have reviewed his x-ray, and they feel there is no need for surgery at this time.  He does have four wisdom teeth that are still developing, but none of them are pushing on his other teeth at this point.  They are saying that the situation can be re-evaluated in a few years, but there is a possibility the teeth will never cause a problem.  So all are saying we should wait, for now. And, as you can imagine, we are relieved.  It had sounded to us in the beginning like it was almost certain that if any wisdom teeth were there that they would need to be removed.  So, this verdict is a bit surprising, but very welcome! 
Again, thank you so much for your prayers, and for all your helpful suggestions.  We  appreciate each of you, and trust God will keep his hand of blessing on your lives.
Yours in His love,
Dean and Stephanie
