Today has been full of good news! This morning I received an unexpected phone call from my doctor. She had received preliminary results from the Amniocentesis we received in Ohio. Apparently the Ohio doctors had run a FISH on our results which means that they run a quick results test on the chromosomes that most frequently show an abnormality in Acardiac pregnancies (for those interested they are Trisomy 13, 18 and 21 and the gender chromosomes). The results all came back clean. We will get full results from the Amnio in several weeks but my doctor stated this morning she would be really surprised if there were any abnormalities since these came back fine. This afternoon I had an ECHO ultrasound. Levi's heart is looking great, so good that we were able to cancel our previously scheduled ECHO for March! The cardiologist was a little concerned he could have a small hole in the bottom left ventricle of his heart, but she did not have conclusive evidence. She assured me that our baby was healthy and then stated that she was simply going to order that Levi had and ECHO after birth to be safe. Both Drew and I do not feel overly alarmed by this news. We have this undeniable peace that God's hand is on Levi. God has certainly been doing more than we could imagine so far.
Tomorrow I will go in for a routine OB appointment... I get to drink the "yummy" orange drink to check for gestational diabetes. After this appointment I will be able to go a WHOLE week without seeing any doctors! Thank you for your continued prayers. I told a friend today that at times I feel guilty to ask God for more because he has done so much already; however, I know I serve a big God who invites me to come to Him. My current prayer is that Levi will defy the odds and will be full term (even over 40 weeks). God can do it, He can do anything :)
