We have moved into our home!! We finally have internet so I wanted to pop in and let you all know that we are doing fine. We moved in two weeks ago to a house with an unfinished kitchen, one working bathroom, exposed nails and wires. Needless to say it has been a little bit stressful! Amongst moving has been a Confirmation, First Holy Communion, eighth grade graduation, finals for Joe, and this weekend a ballet recital and all the craziness that leads up to a ballet recital. And amongst all of the scheduled stuff there was a series of unfortunate events that I will write about soon. I have to write it all down when I get a moment because I really couldn't make this stuff up. All the while I have been begging God not to take Thomas. The deadline that the Doctors imposed on Thomas; the time that he would most likely die inutero is now, between 26-28 weeks. I will be 28 weeks tomorrow. As I type this he is hiccuping!! We had all this "important" stuff going on that I wanted and needed to be present for. I have been so stressed and worried about it. This has been a very dark time for me. As you can see I am still learning to trust and surrender.
I had an ultrasound last week of our little Thomas. His growth has slowed down. His heart still has a little fluid around it but no more than last time. His heart has enlarged though which is indicative of Congestive Heart Failure. He was very active during the ultrasound and I commented to the tech that for a baby who is so sick he sure is active. We tried to get a 3D (or is it 4D?) picture but he kept snuggling his face into the side of my uterus. And his little hands are always by his sweet little face!
I will be back soon with pictures. I have tons of pictures and I recently found my camera in a box. Just in time for recital.
