My heart just melted today when sweet Isaac gave us a thumbs up during today's ultrasound. His poor little body has so many things that are not right, and sometimes I really worry about whether or not he's in pain and can't stand it that I can't do anything for him. His little thumbs up was almost as if to say, "I'm okay in here, Mommy!" It was just the sweetest thing, and I am so thankful that the nice ultrasound tech was able to capture this shot for us.
Today's visit didn't hold any suprises. We knew what we would be hearing, really, although in the back of our minds know that at any second God could change all of this. We had a nice talk with Dr. Gallagher who very gently delivered to us the same news that we heard at Children's two weeks ago, and patiently answered my many questions. In a way, it was good to go today because during our visits with the doctors at Children's I felt like my head was just spinning. Today I had a bit more clarity.
Here are a few more shots. The first is one of Isaac waving, and the other a frontal view of his face.
Thank you to the many of you who have continued to pray for me, Spencer, and sweet Isaac and who have left words of encouragement for us either here or through e-mail. They have been a source of strength for us through this journey, and I want you to know how much we appreciate it.
