6 months already

I  really can not  believe it has already been  6 months and  even better only 3 months till I get to see his little face. Most parents  look more  toward holding their little one, but with  CDH  I have somewhat  came to accept the  fact that it will be a bit longer  till we  get to  hold  our baby. So for now I  long to  see his little face and  hands. It is really crazy how  the past  6 months have  changed   my life. Before I got  pregnant   all I  did was  work and  spend time with  family and  friends, now in  6 short months  my life has been consumed with  just thoughts of  my baby and the future. We went from planning a shower  to worrying about  me and baby  making it through  surgery, back to planning a shower when we found out it was a  boy..... then we get the news that he has   CDH and  now  it is just  dr appointment  after  dr. appointment (  but  I get  tons of ultrasounds and get to see him every week). I only wish I could see the  future and see what it has in store for us  besides  a  good long stay in the hospital.

Dr. appointment went well today

Our  Dr appointment went   a lot better this week than  last week. Our lil guy is  growing and  getting  stronger.  He now  weighs  1lb 4 oz! Last Thursday is  head to  lung ratio ( What they use to measure his lungs) was  1.1 this week it measured 1.6., the  larger the  better  it means his  lung is  getting  bigger! Last week we were told his liver was  60-70 % up and  today it looked as if it was only  30-40 %  up in his chest. I hope it continues to   stay  either where it is or even  leave  the  chest all together. With the  numbers we had last week the board  approved  us to be able to have the tracheal inclusion  to where they  would insert a  hydrogel into his  lungs to help stimulate lung growth. Dr. Yang wants to  hold of   just yet on getting that  since his lungs seem to be  improving slowly. If they can  grow on their own that is even better!  With all the bad news we  have  been  getting I will take the  little bit of good news that  they have to give. I know we still have  a  very long and  crazy  road ahead of us, there is  going to be  plenty of ups and  downs. Tomorrow I will be  6 Months  which means only 3 more months till I  get to see my lil  guy <3 Please  keep the prayers coming for him as he has  a long  fight ahead of him
