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
* 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!
