Still No News

A lot of people have asked if there has been anymore news since our last OB appointment. We still haven't gotten the amnio results back; they are now saying 3-4 weeks and it has been almost 3. For the past few weeks we have just been waiting, reading everything we can about CDH, and talking to other parents who have already been through this. Sorry for the lack of posts -- there just hasn't been anything new to report so far.

Our meeting with the pediatric surgeon at Children's Hospital is on Thursday. We should get a lot more information then about the severity of Claire's condition, the plan for delivering her, and the surgery. I will let everyone know how that appointment goes.

We also have an appointment with the high-risk OB the following Tuesday, and should definitely get the amnio results then, if not sooner. They will probably do another ultrasound, so we will get to see more pictures of little miss Claire. She has been wiggling around a lot lately and I am getting bigger.

For those who are interested, I added an email subscription feature to this blog (see the menu on the right). If you sign up you will receive an email notification whenever a new post is added.

Thanks so much to everyone who has posted comments on here or has called or emailed us. Your kind words and prayers mean a LOT.

So glad that you posted, I have been wondering how things are going. Take this time and enjoy the moments you have right now with Claire. These are the best times! I look forward to hearing all about your appointment on Thursday. It will be a big day for you, but exciting to start all the plans, I bet. Thanks for sharing your story with us!

Love Lauren

So glad to read an update. I'm sure the wait for the amnio is driving you nuts. I'm thinking of you.
