We have had a fun time so far this spring, with what good weather we have had. We have stayed busy with soccer for both Megan and Micah. They both scored goals yesterday at their games...we were very proud parents. We also really enjoy going for bike rides as a family. I am so grateful for the nice weather we have had so far, and hope for a lot more nice weather!!
This little stinker has her mommy wrapped around her little finger about...well 10 times.... I love her soooooooo much!! I don't know what we would do without our Bells!!! Even if she keeps us up all night, screaming, we still think she is the greatest!!! I literally can't get enough of this cute little face...and those dimples...sooooooo cute!! Bella, I hope you have a bright future, and everything is okay!! I am trying so hard to have enough faith! You mean the world to us!! We love you forever...and ever...and ever...........
We had a long weekend! I am so glad it is over! We went to Primary Children's Medical Center for Bella's MRI and found out some good news....I think!! I was so tired and emotionally drained that it all seems like a blur. I didn't hardly sleep all week because I was so worried about this little stinker! Anyway, the head neurosurgeon there came and talked to us about what was going on. He told us that she didn't have enough fluid on her brain to shunt her...which we were soooo relieved. I had been so stressed about that. Also, he told us that she had her septum pellucidum, which was the membrane they were worried that she didn't have. Anyway, she has all of her membranes, but for some reason her brain is underdeveloped. She is a couple months behind. He wants us to come back in 4-6 weeks so he can look at her again, and he also wants us to meet with an ophthalmologist, which is a doctor for her eyes. I don't know what to expect there, but over all we were sooo relieved about the news we got. We went down, expecting the worst, and came out feeling so much relief! We love our sweet Bella and hope she has a bright future ahead! I only hope I can have enough faith!! Thanks again for every ones prayers and for fasting for her! We really appreciate it more than you know!!!!
Well, we head for Utah tonight. We are staying with my sister and then Bella has her MRI at Primary Children Hospital tomorrow. We are very nervous and just hope for the best news possible. I want to thank everyone for their prayers and great support. We feel very blessed!
I have not looked forward to posting this. It isn't the thing you want to blog about, but it is very much the only thing on my mind lately. I took Bella into the doctor on Wednesday for her well baby check up. They were doing the regular measurements, and noticed that her head was too big for her age. She also is behind in her development. She is almost 7 months old and isn't sitting up and not reaching out and grabbing things. This has been worrying me for awhile, but I kept trying to tell myself that it is just different kids going at different speeds. Well, the doctor came back in and said he wanted to ultrasound her head to make sure everything was okay. That made me a little nervous, but I hoped that we would just find out she had a big head. Anyway, the results came back and our sweet little Bella has hydrocephalus, which is too much water on the brain, and they also couldn't find her septum pellucidum, which is the membrane between her 3rd and 4th ventricles. Well, we were pretty devastated to hear that anything was wrong with our baby. We are not sure what to expect, but I think they are going to want to do a shunt for the hydrocephalus, and we still don't know what to think about the absence of the septum pellucidum. She has an appointment scheduled for Friday at 12:30 in Salt Lake at the Primary Children's hospital. They are going to do an MRI. We are praying that everything is going to be okay for Bella. She is such a cute little stinker, and it breaks my heart to think of anything being wrong with her. She is a queen in our home and will always be. We love her forever!!!
