This Sounds Familiar

Note:  Thanks to my favorite sister for posting for me!  I've been sending them to her to post for me.  You can thank her for the updates.  :)  My parents are here tonight, so I'm posting using my dad's server.  Yay!  Blogging makes me happy!

I went back to get another sonogram today to check my fluid levels. Welp, they’re back up.

*sigh* Sounds familiar, doesn't it?

The reduction didn’t last us nearly as long as we’d hoped. Sooooo, I’m here for the weekend, will be rescanned on Monday, and then have another reduction if it’s increased anymore. If history repeats itself, it will be!

This little girl is so stubborn with everything else. Why can’t she just stubbornly swallow? I told her I would give her a brownie if she did. They’re the brownies my favorite sister made, and they’re GOOD. I don’t share with just anyone.

The bright side of this: I already know the procedure and the doctor who will do it, so there won’t be any surprises. Hopefully it will go quicker because the bottles will work this time! Also, getting another reduction means going back to the LD floor with the wonderful nurses I love (even though it means going back on the Mag without being able to use the bathroom or eat). Plus (most importantly to Matt), we get a TV in those rooms. Look, I’m trying to think positively here!!

Probably the most positive thing I can say is that Monday means another week that Abby has had to grow. Every day means that her lungs are just that much more developed. I will do my job to the best of my ability!

Now I must go. My parents are bringing me crab soup from Chesapeake Grille and I am excited!! I’m pretty sure it will be better than the tepid cream of mushroom soup that was served for lunch yesterday. Just an idea.

Hi, Julie,
This is Nancy Sheppard. It sounds like you're going through a lot of what I went through with Emory. If you ever need to talk, please e-mail or txt me, okay? After she's born and everything has settled down, since you don't live very far from me (I live in VA Beach) let's think about getting together. Since Emory and I both have Pierre Robin Sequence, it might help. :-) Keep in touch, okay?

Nancy :-)
