25 Week Appointment

Well not much has changed with Noah, in three weeks his arms and legs grew about a week again, so they are at about 17 weeks now give or take a week. We are beginning to see some bending in his arm bones and also in his ribs from fractures reforming. His chest is small, his heart takes up a disproportionately large amount of it so that's still not good. The Dr. told us that he is leaning toward Osteogenesis Imperfecta. This is basically Brittle Bone Disease, but Noah has a severe form of it. He won't give a definite diagnosis until after he's born, but that is his best guess and Aaron and I are tending to believe him based on what we are seeing. Anyway, we decided I would be delivering at Mercy by C-Section and we will get as close to term as possible. We can tell our Dr. isn't very optimistic about his survival past birth but he won't say that he won't live either. I think so that we can keep hoping.

On an up note, we were given some cute pics of Noah again, which we will post as soon as we can get them to a scanner. He is definitely a thumb sucker! : )

  1. Erin,

    You are truly a source of strength for all Mom's around you. Your reliance on God is unwavering and amazing to me. Hang in there, girl, Noah will be in good hands no matter the outcome. We love the three of you and our prayers for you are steadfast and continued.
