The results were positive though. They confirmed what they had deduced from the ultrasound. It is a left sided hernia with the stomach and part of the intestines in the chest cavity. The entire liver is below the diaphragm though - which is fantastic! It is a much more serious condition when the liver is involved. The kidneys look normal and the right lung looks fairly normal as well! So, it wasn't "bad" news and now we know for certain what we are up against.
Next step is meeting with the surgeon to discuss what will happen after the birth and meet with the NICU people to get a tour of the unit and meet with at least one of the neonatologists. We do not have those appointments scheduled quite yet, but hopefully that will be squared away soon. Tomorrow morning we go back to Choices West for another check up too.
Gumdrop has been very active lately! Mom can actually see her belly moving sometimes from all the bouncing around. And the belly just keeps growing! Dad compared its "getting bigger and bigger everyday" to the mall expansion the other day... Its not usually a good thing to compare your wife to a construction project! :-)
We will keep you posted and let you know how things progress! Thank you for all your love and support!
