the reason why campbell had an ultrasound on friday was to see if she could have a tethered spinal cord. well, she doesn't have that, she has terminal ventricle. i guess the best way to describe it is, she has fluid at the base of her spine. she now has to see a neurosurgeon, who wants to do an mri...the problem is, is that she's only 42 weeks post-conception and doctors typically don't like to sedate babies until they are 56ish weeks post-conception. we're waiting to see if the neurosurgeon thinks the mri needs to happen now or if its okay to wait. depending on what he finds on her mri, she may or may not need surgery to remove the ventricle.
as a brand new mom, i now know what it feels like to not be able to help your child...that helplessness. bummer. i hate that she has to be sedated for the mri and potentially need surgery. i guess there is no reason to worry right now...we just need to wait to see how things play out. easier said than done, right?
God so evidently had His hand on our sweet girl when she came into the world, i know that He will continue to have His hand on her during this part too. please keep praying for our sweet girl!
