Update on Zoe - by her Dad
I just wanted to put up a quick note on Jody's behalf that Zoe's doctor appointment today turned into a hospital stay. The doctor was concerned that despite original indications that Zoe did not have TB, he sees some reason to think it might be. Zoe and Jody were sent right over to the hospital (which is an hour away from our house) to be admitted where they will remain in the isolation room until at least Saturday while a series of tests are run to either confirm TB or discover what is causing her breathing troubles. They are not especially concerned that it is contagious because infants are rarely if ever contagious to others, they usually get it rather than give it, but it is standard medical procedure to isolate possible TB cases regardless. Looks like it is going to be a long week for the Hilt family, and possibly an even longer period of treatment/recovery for our beautiful new daughter. Please keep her, Jody, the doctors, and the rest of our family in your prayers. We are trusting God for wisdom and healing in accordance with his good, pleasing and perfect will.
