I certainly was not prepared for the results of the amniocentesis! The lowest for lung maturity is 55, and this baby is only at 16. The fluid is currently being shipped to a lab where it will be tested with more precise equipment. For now, we are awaiting instructions from the doctors. I will admit that this is the biggest blow to me. I feel about as blah as I ever have in years! With one child who suffers with breathing problems, I hate for another to have similar struggles. Please pray for the little one as each day is an added bonus to its lung development.
I am curious as to how quickly the number gets higher. . . So far, I have found no info. Do any of you that have undergone this test have any idea?
My Mom and youngest sister are arriving tonight and will be here for several weeks. I am sad to see Joanna leave, but it will also be a blessing to spend time with my Mother. I can assure you, she will walk around with a gentle whip and not let me do a thing!
On a brighter note, I wanted to brag on our church family. . .They have been so kind and thoughtful during this ordeal. Eight different ladies have sent or delivered food, which we in turn enjoyed fourteen meals from the bounty! I have been called, phoned and emailed many times to let me know people are praying and thinking of me. All my good blog friends are just as uplifting! Thanks for sticking with me; your comments are encouraging and a bright spot in these long days.
Due to my bed rest, the baby shower was cancelled. The ladies have been bringing gifts to church, and Troy totes them home. It is always very exciting to get these! :-) Here we are last Sunday and pardon the poor quality photo - the camera was on the wrong setting. The boys were so happy since I let them open a few. It made the evening very exciting!
