After Magdalena was born yesterday morning, the doctors did a battery of x-rays, tests and blood work to find out what issues were present and unknown at that point. One concern that was present during a very early ultrasound was a hole in her heart. It was during this ultrasound that the determination was made to send Julie to have an amniocentesis done leading to the diagnosis of Trisomy 18. The x-rays taken yesterday show that that hole DOES NOT exist anymore. A definate PRAISE!! We are still waiting for more results from the rest of the tests.
Julie and Noah have spent a good amount of time this afternoon with Magdalena in the NICU. Julie is up and walking and made it all the way from her room to the NICU!!! She is in some pain after making that trip but is still in good spirits.
Please continue to pray that Magdalena continues to take her bottle. She did not do as well during her feeding this afternoon.
More to Come!!!
