As traumatic as this day was on my mommy heart, all ended well. It was a long two and a half hour wait in the waiting room as my baby girl was in the care of the doctors once again, but she handled it all like a champ! She is very cranky as she’s fighting the side effects of the anesthesia, but the results were great.
Harper’s growth is right on target- 19 pounds, 27 1/2 inches long, and a stable head circumference of 46 1/2 centimeters. Her MRI was also stable, and even showed a slight improvement. No drastic changes, but her ventricles seem to have gone down ever so slightly and are evening out.
So, the verdict is that God has shown off once again. Harper is amazingly perfect and so very tough- God’s hand is all over this baby! Even after the events of the past two days, she was smiling and babbling and going with the flow. As long as no problems arise we do not have to see Duke again for a whole six months! We will follow up with all departments at that point, but no major tests or scans, just check-ups. Then, in a year, we will do the scans again.
All I can say is praise God from whom all blessings flow! There truly are no adequate words when it comes to the miracle He has given us.
