After a hectic morning we made it to Houston this past Wednesday for our appt with all of the specialists. We started the morning with an ultrasound and after meeting with the Dr they decided that things looked so great that they didn't feel I needed to have the MRI. That was awesome news!! Not only did our sweet little Eden Rose look great and healthy, we didn't have to fork out the money for a very expensive MRI. The Drs checked with the specialist that sent me to them and he still wanted us to get the echo on her heart. So after a lunch break it was back to another exam room for an ultrasound of just her heart. Next we met with the Cardiologist and she said that her heart looked great. You can imagine our relief after such wonderful news. They cancelled the rest of our appts we had scheduled and sent us on our merry way. :)
We did learn a few things about the baby that we didn't know. They informed us that she doesn't have a nasal bone and that her arms and legs are a little shorter than typical at this stage of gestation. Her bowels are still "glowing" a little bit but the Dr said that they still looked good so they weren't concerned about them at all. So basically all of that means that she may or may not have down syndrome. We are so happy that our baby girl is healthy! Thanks to all for your prayers. We are truly blessed and are definitely counting our many blessings this Thanksgiving.
