Today I was taken a little offguard. After two weeks of GREAT reports today we heard the dreaded word: GROWTH! The little Acardiac twin had grown in the past week. This was a mixed report. While the nonliving twin had grown when they looked comparatively at the weight of the two babies the Acardiac twin had actually decreased to being only 28% of the healthy babies size. I rejoice in this fact but was also hoping that the Acardiac twin would stabilize.
Wednesday we go in for a ECHO ultrasound of the healthy baby and meet with a pediatric cardiologist. This will tell us if there is any evidence that the heart is being worked too hard.
