Girls are so fun, aren't they? Today we had a special appointment for Yehbie. At our original ultrasound, Yehbie's right kidney was slightly larger than the left. So, today we visited the perinatal center for another ultrasound. Our sweet friend agreed to take the girls for the afternoon for us, and this picture was waiting for us when we got home. Too fun! Allison and her friend are just a day apart, and we have pictures of them together since they were just days old. I'll add this to the collection!
The result from this second ultrasound was not quite what we were hoping to hear... Unfortunately, the right kidney is continuing to enlarge, due to being closed off from the ureter, and thus not secreting urine. The good news is we serve a big God, and are praying for a miracle. I have total peace, but a stir in my heart to pray, pray, pray! Unfortunately, this may require surgery after birth, (there is a good chance), but again.. we are praying for a miracle! And, we'd love for you to join us in prayer. Surgery would be removing the kidney, which would still mean there could be other complications.
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, WITH THANKSGIVING, present your requests to God. And, the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." Phillipians 4:6-7
