Our day at CHOP

We had a wonderful day at CHOP. We got there RIGHT at 10am and were seen within minutes. We didn't have to wait around for any of our appointments they kept us moving all day! Our cardiologist was out today so we met with a different one and she was so encouraging! They said the baby was so good for the echo it stayed in the same position so they could get some really good pictures!! The baby was laying head down face up! Of course when we went for our growth ultrasound and I wanted a picture of the baby the baby flipped over and had its back to us!! haha! Oh well! The baby is weighing in at about 3 lbs and in the 17th percentile! Babies with TOF are typically smaller at birth! YAY for me! Our next appointment at CHOP will be my transfer of care! This pregnancy is really flying by! I can't believe that in about 9 weeks this little peanut will be here! Today we also met with a lactation consultant and had a tour of the C.I.C.U. (Cardiac Intensive Care Unit.) So many little tiny babies awaiting surgery or just out of surgery! Poor babies! Pray that the Lord would heal their sweet little bodies so they can get home with their families!! Thank you everyone for all of your prayers we have certainly felt them!! Continue to pray that if it is the Lords will that our sweet baby will be healed!!
