Today's Appointment

We are exhausted and so this will be brief. We went to Magee again today and we did have much better doctors so that prayer was answered. They took quite a bit of time with us. They found NO evidence of clubfoot and are not completely sure about the hole in his heart. His head is measuring small still however by about 3 weeks.

We were referred to a genetic doctor because they feel quite certain that this baby's issues are linked to Isaacs. The two cases are too similar to be unrelated and so they want to investigate that possibility further. We will have one last appointment in Pittsburgh in four weeks to assess the situation and prepare for birth.

So, again and still we do not know for sure. I guess God just really wants us to rely on Him! There is a possibility that this could be the same thing that happened to Isaac and there is a possibility that even if it is it won't be as severe. We are still certain that God will take care of Happy. The clubfoot issue has been removed so who is to say He won't remove this issue also? So please keep us in your prayers. It was an amazing feeling knowing how many people were praying for us today! We are so thankful for you all! Please keep up the prayers...they ARE working! God hears and he will respond!

I am glad that one concern has been resolved and possibly two. That is wonderful news that he is still growing, even if it is a little behind. Praying for you and your family. I hope you have a blessed holiday.

I'm so "happy" to hear that things went much better this time around. I will continue to pray for Happy & for you and Howard, especially. Please say a small prayer for me as I am also pregnant and having my first ultrasound done on Friday. Now that I've read about your situation; the unknown scares me a little. This is my second pregnancy and all was well with the fist one - for the most part, thankfully. I just want a healthy baby; as I'm sure you both do, too. Take care and God Bless!

Kristy,
We received your Christmas card just today. It is at the top of our 'favorites.' The wonderful words of toddlers! Thank you for sharing on this site. We continue to pray for all of you, and keep our trust in God's amazing grace.
