Today, we got to see McKinley Beth again! As I have experienced in the past, the day before her appointment, I found myself very anxious and alittle nervous.. although excited to see her. I find that I get really nervous that they are going to find something else wrong that they hadn't before. Combine that, with that I called the OU NICU to set up an appointment to tour, so that we would be prepared.. I made myself REALLY sick last night. I went to bed by 5:40, and by 8 pm, I was SICK. I felt alittle better this morning, but was really lethargic.
She is measuring 30 weeks 4 days. And is weighing 3.6 lbs. Her heart, kidneys, lip and brain were all looking good. Just like they should be. Dr. Stanley was able to point out that she has hair(I would sure think so, if the old wives tale of heartburn is true!). Her omphalocele was measuring 3.5 cm. So still VERY small. He was able to take a better look at it, and said he thinks that it is bowels that are outside of the body. He did not mention thinking it was a gastroscesis again. However, he did say, "well we will know a whole lot more once she is here". Yes, yes we will.
