Official start of the BLOG
Welcome to our new blog site! The below posts are emails that I have sent to our family and friends regarding our son's diagnosis of meningocoele spina bifida and hydrocephalus when I was 22 weeks pregnant. I was sent to Dr. Pietrantoni (perinatologist) after my regular OB's office was unable to "get all the correct measurements" they needed. I am very thankful to be under the best care possible during the remainder of my now "high risk" pregnancy. I see Dr. Dunn next week on Monday the 22nd. I will continue seeing her for regular OB care, but will see Dr. P on a regular basis for "baby care." Next Wednesday, March 24th, Rodney and I will be seeing Dr. Moriarty (pediatric neurosurgeon) to discuss the surgeries our son may have in his first few days of life. We will be learning a lot of new information at this appointment, however I fully anticipate it to be extremely overwhelming. Will update as I know more. KEEP PRAYING!
