36 hours till he makes his arrival!

It is hard to  believe the  day is only  36 hours away! I am  still not  really  sure if it has hit me that this is all going to happen  Friday. We have  done everything we  could do to prep for this day. As long as I  don't go into  early labor  in the  next 36 hours everything is  set up  for this one moment. I am beyond excited to see his little  face and  long for the day I will actually get to  hold him, but I know it will be weeks. I did get a  call from the fetal care institute today and   they  told me that  his head lung ratio went  from a  2.5 to a  2.8  last week so that was some good news I got. I am  trying so hard to keep all the  "what if's " out of my mind and  be thankful for what we have had so far. We have made it  so close to  37 weeks, His head lung ratio was  at a  1.3 when we  first started and  now we are  so close to a 3, we  have had only good news about how his heart looks( which is  def a  good thing) and  we know he has a left lung we just don't know how  much.... I am  so thankful for all of this! I know that  no matter what the  outcome is Parker is in the best hands at Cardinal Glennon, they are  truly some amazing dr's there <3
I  want to Thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for all the  prayers and support  we have received.  This  pregnancy isn't what  anyone would have hoped for  but I wouldn't trade it for anything b/c  I am going to have a  perfect little miracle to call my baby. I have  met some amazing  people  through this whole thing and that too is a  blessing. If it wasn't for the  support of the  other mothers  that  have been  exactly where I am  I would be a  basket case.
I  just ask that  you  keep  Parker in you thoughts and prayers  for the next couple of  weeks as he is going to have to  fight  the  odd's that are against him <3
  Pray that
* No ECMO is needed
* He lungs are  stronger than  expected
 * He  does not  have  ANY   pulmonary hypoplasia and pulmonary hypertension.
* He is able to make it home to his mommy and  daddy  <3

I will  be posting  here to update as soon as I can and I will post pics for you all to see how amazingly cute he is  .... Again thanks for the  prayers!
