Rodney and I had another good visit today at Dr. P's office.
*We learned that he now weighs approximately 6 pounds 6 ounces.
*The fluid on the brain (hydrocephalus) has not increased dramatically. There is still plenty of "good brain tissue" surrounding the 2 ventricles (measuring at approx. 2.1 cm) of the brain which is the main concern at this point.
*They have moved my date up for the c-section. He will now be born on July 2nd! Apparently there was some conflict in scheduling the July 7th date. Dr. Moriarty is planning to be out of town that day...we for sure want the neurosurgeon present to check on our baby boy after he is born!! I will be calling their office on Thursday, because I am thinking they will go ahead and do the closure surgery that afternoon, since July 2nd is a Friday. I doubt they will schedule a surgery for a Saturday...we shall see.
*I will see Dr. P the next 2 Wednesdays and then BabyDay will be just 2 days away!!!!!
*I now have the task of making sure Paisley is well taken care of during a time when I will be just a little preoccupied. Many of you have shared with me that you are willing to have Paisley for a while during my time in the hospital and then the many, many hours Rodney and I, and our immediate family, will spend at the hospital with Beckett. For that generosity, I am so thankful.
The time until we meet our sweet Beckett is getting closer and closer. The room is almost ready. We have purchased the major items needed. Now to prepare our minds and hearts for all of the emotions we will experience during our time after he is born. If only we could "prepare"...I feel we have done our best. We are just ready to meet him!
Thank you so much for your many thoughts and prayers. Please continue!
Rodney, Meghan, and Paisley
