I still haven't heard from the lab to know if the DNA sample is there. I think I finally reached my peak of anxiety---I decided today, after school, that I can't continue like this. (and that was before Wendy reminded me that I was supposed to be meeting her for dinner). I went and bought myself some flowers on the way home tonight and decided that I need to find a way to have a little bit of peace for the next few days. I know I won't hear anything until tomorrow at the earliest, so I'm going to try to relax a little bit tonight. My agency is working on the problem and there is hope of some communication tomorrow. So, I will leave it up to them and God and I will try to focus on being a better teacher and friend right now.
If you've been praying for me to have some peace in all this, keep praying. I think it's working. :)
