 I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.  Psalms 34:4

One of our dental assistants, Maria had a fingerstick with a used needle last week while cleaning trays.  Unfortunately, the patient had already left and they didn't have any contact information from him to be able to do an HIV test on him.  As quiet as she is, we could still tell she was upset and worried.  We were all praying that everything would be alright.  Three days later, the same patient came back because of lingering pain and wanted to check the wound.  They were so excited that he had come back and were able to do an HIV test on him.  But it came back positive, so they repeated it and the second one was negative...Well, that got us all pretty worried, so we asked him to go to a lab to have a confirmation test done.  He was a little worried himself and agreed to do it when we offered to pay.  Thankfully the test was negative and we all rejoiced with Maria that she could enjoy the holiday weekend without worrying about her HIV status!  Thank you, Father for your mercifulness in sending the patient back to us!
