Day 21

Friday, April 02, 2010
Today is bittersweet. I spoke with Dr. Barton this morning and things are finally starting to take that final turn. He is consulting with another doctor, Dr. Sabai, who apparently is internationally recognized in the field. I googled him. His name is everywhere, so I feel confident between he and my doctors they know what they are doing. Unfortunately, our outcome isn't going to be what we hoped for unless by some miracle she has doubled in size, but we have the comfort of knowing we've had the best doctors out there taking care of us and everything that could be done, was done.

On a more hopeful note, I spoke with Ashley this morning. Most of you have found your way here from her website. If not, Ashley is my cousin who unfortunately has gone through this very exact same thing, only mine has been a bit more in slow motion. She had a doctor's appointment this morning and informed her doctor of my situation. Her doctor was very surprised that this could happen in the same family like it has with us. Ashley and I are hopeful that maybe between both our cases, these doctors out there might be able to find something different that they didn't know they should be looking for or maybe even a new test. Obviously, that would be quite awhile from now, but if somehow, someway, Josey and Nolan could help save the lives of other babies and mommies in this condition, then that would definitely make us happy.

Please continue to keep us in your prayers. Keep Ashley and Chris in your prayers too as they get ready to try again, and keep our doctors in your prayers so that just maybe something good can come from all of this.

For those of you who haven't visited Ashley's blog and read her story, you can find it here

  1. I am so sorry, you are in my prayers. You are right, maybe something good will come from all of this. Things come to life in families from generations back, and we never knew about them. Keep up the good spirits you have, I really admire you. Know it is a hard thing to do. Take care.

  9. *Hugs* I found you through Ashley's blog as well. It is so sad that something like this can happen twice to one family. I hope that the doctors can find something they didn't know before to help future moms out there because of you and Ashley.
