I just got off of the phone with our doctor from Pittsburgh. As I have stated we do really trust and respect him and he was calling to update us on basically nothing....
He explained that they thought they had a good idea for a diagnosis but after I sent him the photos they came up with basically nothing. They really don't know right now but they are still trying to find a diagnosis. His only question for me was if we were quite certain this baby was male and I explained that it had been checked several times and we were quite certain. He said there are a few things that it could be that would only be transmitted to a male child.
He went on to say that he sees no reason why we shouldn't deliver here in Erie with our regular doctors. He was confident that the NICU here should be able to provide for any needs we would have immediately. He said he would call our doctors next week and be sure they were prepared and comfortable with everything.
Before we ended the conversation he said he just didn't want me to think he forgot about us and that he is trying very hard to find answers. He said that we of course are hoping for a better outcome this time, though things look remarkably similar to Isaac. This is the first time a doctor has even used the word hope with us. I know it isn't much but it has lifted my spirits just a bit!
