We visited the doctor again today for fetal monitoring. Janis’ blood pressure was a bit elevated so they did a blood panel. Our OB didn’t like one of the results so he scheduled us to come in for an amnio to test lung development for the boy child who’s essentially stopped growing. The amnio results showed his lungs are fully developed. So Dr. Levine told us that the numbers are indicating that Janis has early signs of preeclamsia. Her body is showing too many signs of stress and shutting down in the face of the pregnancy. So the time to do it is now. We’ll be in the delivery room at 2 PM for a caesarean. By late afternoon or early evening, Miriam Rose and Adin Chanan should be with us…just in time for Thanksgiving.
Thursday will be a true and literal day of thanksgiving for us.
