Wow…..only 2 months left until the scheduled delivery of Maria Isabella.
I can’t believe that 8 weeks have already passed…..8 weeks! For Cristina, that’s 8 weeks (more or less) of having been on bed rest…..barely able to get up and walk around to get a simple “change of scenery”….it’s incredible. I already admired my wife before we were even married….now that’s gone up like X 100.
Wednesday’s visit was another ordinary ultrasound (and for us, ordinary is GOOD!) of Maria Isabella….they examined her legs, the surgery site on her back and the liquid flow in her brain/ventricles. Everything seems to be the same….and it’s safe to say that if there was a goal in having this surgery – the early repair of the Spina Bifida site on Bella’s back – then they seem to be reaching that. Praise God!
On another note…..Cristina’s glucose test that was done last week came back “abnormal” which means that she either had pregnancy diabetes…or was prone to having it.
Thank God! After this morning’s blood tests, they confirmed that Cristina did not have diabetes!
As for everything else…it is coming along slowly….and now we are praying for patience as we await our little girl!
More updates coming soon!
Andrew, Cristina and Maria Isabella
