Default Prayer request

I don't normally ask for things but this one is out of our control. My wife is pregnant with our 3rd baby and second little girl. Baby's name is Caroline and wife is 29-30 weeks along. A little less then two weeks ago they did an ultrasound and found that one of her ventricles in her brain is a good bit larger then normal. We were sent to a high risk ob/gyn last Thursday to recheck. They measured about the same so they are thinking possible hydrocephalus. Well they tell us that it's a hurry up and wait thing and there is a chance she is born perfectly fine with no complications. Then they start looking at her heart and couldn't get as clear pictures as they wanted due to there being fluid around her heart. At this point it went from we will watch it and see about her brain to we may be driving to Dallas to see other specialists because they think she may be anemic. We will find out more tomorrow. I'm gonna leave it at that and just say they prepared us for the absolute worst case scenario you could imagine to there still being a chance that everything turns out fine, but those chances are starting to become less.

I've seen the power of prayer first hand and would appreciate it if you would lift my wife and sweet baby Caroline up to the lord ask for all the help we could get.


Thank you.

Baby Caroline's health will definitely be in our prayers, as well as your wife. Hang tough Dad, your strength means a lot to the family. I know we have some strong prayer partners here and we ask the Lord to surround your family with His healing hands.

Update: We got much better news today. Heart was measuring a little better. If the labs come back normal then we can stop worrying about the heart. Doctor now thinks they will most likely come back negative. Have an appointment next Tuesday to remeasure and we should have the labs back in the next day or so. Not 100% out of the woods on the heart yet but looks a lot better then it did!

Thank you so much for all the thoughts and prayers! Lord willing we will be able to put this behind us!

UPDATE!!!

We drove to Dallas yesterday and had a fetal MRI done to figure out exactly what we were dealing with. Her ventricles in her brain continued to measure too big in all of our ultrasounds so the docs wanted to see what was going on beneath it and make a determination of where we were going to deliver. They were anticipating us delivering in Dallas because they thought she would need things done after the birth.

MRI came back as good as it could have. The ventricles on both sides of her brain measured large but at the far end of normal. Neurologist said she doesn't worry unless they are bigger. Brain is perfectly fully formed! We are going to be able to deliver normally in San Angelo. Probably just have to have an ultra sound done after she is born just to check.

I cannot begin to express how relieved we are! Thank you to everyone sending their thoughts and prayers to us! The power of the lord is truly amazing!
