Updates

It's another week and we just wanted to give everyone an update. You all are precious for the abundance of continued calls, texts, meals, emails, cards, posts,etc. We just can't say it enough, we are overwhelmed and our hearts are full from YOU! Each and everyone of you that reaches out, even the ones we haven't ever met personally, it is amazing and we feel your love and prayers!

Late last week we received the final results from our CVS, and they are the same as the preliminary results, they are normal, which was a nice relief. This is good news, but also leaves us, and the Doctors wondering what exactly is causing the hygroma. There are A LOT of other reasons that this could be occurring, we are just eliminating some of those one by one, which is what the CVS did. The Doctors are quick to tell us that there are still many many other major defects, and neural tube defects and heart defects that are NOT tested with a CVS. The heart chambers, skeletal structures, and main organs are not really able to be diagnosed with any potential issues until 20 weeks when she has had some time to grow. We entered our 15th week this week.

We go back to our specialist this Friday morning, the 11th. We will be sure to update our blog after our appointment. At this appointment we hope to discuss and leave knowing more about the results of the CVS test that they did. We know they are normal chromosomes, (which again we rejoice in small victories!) but we still have a long road to face and pray each day that the hygroma is miraculously healed and our baby is healthy. Some say that's too optimistic, in terms of medical thought, but we have heard and seen stories of healing's before in this exact arena and we pray ours is one. We do know that God is with us in this every single step. We rely on our faith and scripture knowing that there is a purpose and a plan. It hasn't been an easy road at all, we are on the roller coaster of emotions, some days are better than others, and some are downright overwhelming as you can imagine. But we are truly held up by our wonderful friends and family. The continued messages each and everyday that people are still praying for us is beyond incredible and we are forever grateful for every single one.

We continue to pray for a miracle and cling to the everlasting arms. There is no better place to be. Thanks for opening your hearts on this journey with us.

With much faith, hope and love,
Jennifer and Jimmy
