Follow Up Ultrasound

We had another ultrasound last Friday to see if there was still blood on the brain. From what our doctor told us, there doesn't appear to be anything new. The swelling in the brain ventricles has grown but only in proportion to the growth of Hayden. She estimated that he weighed 2.5lbs and was 14 inches long. We were worried about the readings from the MRI results from San Fran, but we were told that the terms were not a diagnosis of possible function for our baby. At this point we just don't know how things will be for Hayden until he is born. On a happy note...we got a 3D ultrasound and the poor little guy looks like he has my nose.

We will have an full tour and meeting with a team of doctors from Seton medical center this Thursday to tour their NICU and to see where my surgery will be performed. I also got a referral to talk to two moms with kids that have Spina Bifida and live here in Austin. Very different outcomes but both offer me a lot of hope.
