Today, we got to see our little baby via ultrasound for the first time in three months. We got to watch it wiggle and rub its little face.
Today, we saw the cardiologist that has treated our Jude for the past three and half years, and he got to give us a very precious gift:
A Good Report!
The doctor said that Sweet Pea's heart looked PERFECT! From the sonogram pictures taken today, the doctor ruled out 100% of major heart problems and 98% of all other heart problems. He also said that from what he saw of the baby, everything looked good so far! He commented on how active the baby was (YAY), and that he would be surprised if there was anything wrong with this baby! *Music to my ears*
The doctor was also very kind and shared a word of encouragement with us. He said that he was very proud that we had chosen to grow our family and that we were very strong and admirable people. So nice of him to say those things when he doesn't have to.
Lane and I were not sure how to handle good news. It's been a long time since we were able to breathe a sigh of relief.
The path still has some climbing in it. We have a few more major appointments that will help us get some ideas on the baby's health. However, these appointments may bring us some answers, they are only clues. We will not know the genetic makeup of this baby until it's born and blood work can be done.
Thank you to all who prayed! I am elated to be able to share very good news with you. We love y'all and know that we are so blessed to have you and the Lord with us on this journey of faith in our life.
