Preliminary Results Are In

Dr. Harris, my perinatal specialist called yesterday during what had to have been her lunch break.
Unless she was off that day. Either way I don't care. I feel so blessed to have such caring, incredible doctors taking such good care of me and my Ladybug.

I hadn't expected results so soon, but after testing chromosomes 13, 18, 21, x, & y, (or something like that. The Man knows more about this stuff than me),

So far, so good!!!

Results are normal. The relief, the glorious relief I feel makes every little twinge of that amnio worth it. A 1000 times over. I suppose I've always known that I'd go through just about any ache or pain for my little one, but now I am absolutely certain that I would without hesitation go through every ache or pain for this girl.

We're not out of the woods yet. The final results will be ready in a few more days. But I'm still optimistic and hopeful that all will be well. I finally feel like I can focus, keep moving, and concentrate on getting her heart healthy.

Now I want to again express my gratitude. First of all, to our Father in Heaven and our Savior. To my husband. To my parents, siblings, in-laws, and extended family. To all of you, who have shared your faith and prayers with us. Truly, our prayers have been heard and answered with this sweet miracle.
Strangers in temples across the country (and world! Thank you Aunt Linda!), everyone within the sights of this blog, friends, and family,
I have thanked God for you. I have prayed that He bless your lives and grant you the desires of your hearts. I have prayed that His tender mercies be poured out upon all of you.

I know this battle isn't over yet. There are still trials to overcome. There is still much for me to pray and hope for. And always much to be grateful for.
