Something I didn't think about

Yesterday Kyndra had her 12 month checkup with Dr. Z. Overall it went well. Kyndra's next appointment will be her 15 month one and it is due in April. I'm actually going to see if we can do it in May instead when she's 16 months because April will just be an emotional time for us and I think it would be better. I didn't set anything up leaving the office and I don't think there will be a big problem having just a month later.

While Dr. Z was still in the room with Kyndra and I she mentioned giving Kyndra some siblings. I told her she's going to have a little sister in April and she congratulated us. Then came the big BUT....I told her she wasn't going to live. I told her that Carleigh has anencephaly and we talked a little bit. She said that her and a few of the other doctors in the office can deal with high risk pregnancies. She asked if we planned to delivery at CMH and I told her we were so I guess one of them will be the ones handling Carleigh after she is born and if she lives long enough. Dr. Z wanted me to go ahead and fax the Level 2 ultrasound I had. She mentioned, too, about a meeting before delivery to go over everything so we will see. After I left the office I called Dr. F's office and asked if they could fax over the ultrasound from Dec 15 when we found out, the Level 2 ultrasound from Dec 17, and our birth plan to Dr. Z's office and they said they would. I'm glad that this was brought up at Kyndra's appointment because it totally didn't cross my mind that to get in touch with a neonatalogist. I'm sure I would've thought of it later but I'm glad it's getting taken care of now.

That would help out a lot with your birthplan as far as having the right kind of people care for you both, wouldn't it?

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
