I saw my doctor here in Great Bend this afternoon, and nothing's really changed. They did a biophysical profile on Kristen (checking movement, etc.) and she scored 8 out of 8. She's definitely growing!
My doctor here thinks that returning to the specialist in Wichita will be a waste of time and money, but Will and I aren't so sure. There's an obvious difference of opinion about the size of the CCAM between the two offices, and it's difficult to put more stock in the opinion of the doctor who's never seen a CCAM before than in the one who's seen many. At this point, we're still planning to go back to Wichita on the 24th to see Dr. O'Hara (who will definitely be there this time!). We'll see what she thinks and then decide what to do about where to deliver. Please join us in praying that the decision will be clear to us.
I did find out what happened to the films that were supposed to be in Wichita at our last visit there. They were there, but apparently things get a little chaotic when a visiting specialist comes to fill in. Due to the cost of bringing him in, they fill the schedule completely full. The films may have been misplaced at the Wichita office, or everyone was just too busy to look in the right place...I don't know. I do know, however, they made it there.
Regardless, Kristen seems to be doing well at this point and may not require surgery right after birth. Evaluation of the lung would have to be done after her arrival to determine when surgery would be necessary.
Her head is down and her rump is front and just off-center to the right most of the time. Not the most comfortable position...for me anyway! Between that and fighting sinus issues, I haven't been sleeping well at night. Will and the girls have been great about helping out though. I don't know what I'd do without my amazing family and friends!
For the time being, no news is good news, I guess. I'll keep the site updated as we find out more. God bless you all!
