So now we are in the "in-between dates". I have wondered many times since the 11th what kind of a day it was in the NICU on that day in 2011. And it still is so unbelievable that this all happened a year ago. It feels like yesterday. I couldn't imagine that I would be pregnant a year later. There are just so many emotions. The day after we got home we drove to Savannah for our first perinatologist appointment. We were there a while and loved the medical professionals we met and thankfully heard that every looks perfect. We have been blessed to hear good news at every appointment, but despite the smoothness of this pregnancy, we still are guilty of worrying we won't be able to bring this baby home. I think being pregnant has reminded us how you are not in control and you just have to do the best you can, pray and hope. But we are so very thankful that everything has looked perfect. We asked at this appointment (like we do at all) how the lungs look and basically heard what we have heard many times. Since the lungs are still developing and are mainly tissue, you can't really see them, only where they should be and parts of them. You can see the "branches" and also that there is lung tissue there, but babies don't use the lungs until they are born, so there is no way to tell if they will work. Still we are very thankful for all the good news we heard and for the extra care we have received.
Please continue to pray for a healthy Rainbow and for us as we brace for Polly's angelversary, the holidays, and our Rainbow's arrival. And thank you for remembering Polly. We still hurt for her so much.
|On their way to Heaven!|
|Happy 1st Birthday Polly! We love you!|
