Today I learned baby boys develop slower than baby girls. That's unfortunate since there's a high risk of prematurity after fetal surgery. We met with a Neonatologist today who was supposed to awaken us to the reality of having a premature baby. It was actually comforting to talk to her, though, because she knows how to handle premature babies. Doctors can do really miraculous things. We trust our baby will be in good hands at whatever week he's born and forever afterwards.
We also asked the most important question today: Will we get handicap
parking? Yes!! Possibly during my bed rest and most likely once we have Baby Hudson. Spina Bifida? We're in it for the parking!
I got my second booty shot this afternoon. The shot, itself, hurt a lot
less than yesterday but I felt the after effects for a longer time
Finally, what we've all been waiting for...our MRI results...were consistent with the ultrasound, so we decided to do fetal surgery! I check into the hospital on Monday night and surgery is scheduled for Tuesday at 7:30 am. It should last about 3 hours but don't freak out if you don't hear from us until later that night. Until then, thank you so much for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. I'm actually a little bit selfish because I love tracking my blog page views and followers, especially right after I add a post. Feel free to view my blog as often as you want so I can rack up my stats. It makes me feel good.
