Feb 24/09 - Happy Day!!
Well it's nice to be able to report good news! I decided not to update things until tonight after a few tests we had done. This morning we had another ultra sound to check the boys lung development and to check our little fighters lung growth. This afternoon I had another NST test. While I was in having the NST test my OB came in to tell me the results of the ultra sound. She came in and the first thing she said was "I looked at the results of the babies, and I am very happy with both of them!!" AHHHHHH, it was so good to hear those words!! She said that both are looking good. Our little fighter boy still have very little fluid. I don't exactly understand the measurements but she said they would rather see his levels at a 2, but they are at 1.4, and she said that's really not THAAAT bad. Yes, VERY different with our content boys fluid levels and the norm, but she said that she is still comfortable with the level. Then she went over both boys lung growth. They aren't exact measurements, but relatively close. Our content boys lungs are at a 60th percentile, and our fighter boy's are at a 25th percentile. She said that if his lungs were in the 5th percentile she would be very concerned for his lungs, but the 25th percentile really isn't that bad!! Especially for when this happened and for how long he has gone with little fluid!!!! YIPEEEEEEE, we are happy with those results, and very thankful to God for this precious gift!!! Some people in a "normal" pregnancy would panic if they heard 25th percentile...but we are jumping for joy!!! We couldn't be more happy!! Then she went over my NST test print out and said they are once again perfect!! AHHHHHHH seriously...what a nice change to get uplifting and encouraging news!!! We feel so amazed and SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO blessed!!! What a true miracle!!!! Again...tell me God doesn't answer prayer and doesn't work through all the details!!! I am truly humbled by the way He has been watching over our little fighter boy...BOTH our fighter boys!!! As Thursday approaches (which marks week 27) we feel renewed strength and optimism that these boys will continue to be a witness to all these medical people on our team. We rejoice in each day that has passed and for each day that God will continue to bless us with for me to continue carrying these precious miracles!! We entrust our sons to His care. "I am sure that our suffering now cannot be compared to the shining-greatness that He is going to give us." Romans 8:18 "Come and listen, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me. I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and heard my voice in prayer. Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!" Psalm 66: 16-20
