Thought you would all like to know that I received the results of my genetics test today.
I tested NEGATIVE for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutation, which is AWESOME news!
It means my daughters have only 20% chance of developing breast cancer, which is similar to the general public. Had I tested positive, their risk would have gone up 80%...scary to think about.
Lutheran Hospital has also reviewed my bill from my hospital stay and surgery in September and has reduced my bill by $438....which means I pay Tower Bank $69 a month for 3 years and 3 months vs. 3 years and 10 months...every little bit helps I guess!
Now I have to trust God to provide those funds along with over $2500 in legal fees and a $3700 bill from the hospital from my stay this past spring. I am applying for patient fee assistance from St. Vincent's Hospital, and I am praying I qualify. There is no way I can pay that bill too...so I am filling out all the forms, providing info on my prescription costs, my income, etc.
Pray for patience, trust, wisdom and guidance. I must confess, that even after all the blessings that God has given me the past several months, I still get a bit worried at times about all of the bills.
