On the way . . .
We're on the way to Charleston this morning, ready or not! We'll get settled in and spend some time with the boys, plus meet some of our new friends at Cross Bridge Ministry on Sunday. Then Brandt's delivery / c-section has been moved up to 9am Tuesday morning the 25th. Please pray for wisdom for the doctors as they stabilize and observe him to best schedule his Norwood surgery.
On a VERY happy note, we got an "unofficial" weight estimate on Thursday, his last appointment. 3 times my sweet ultrasound technician weighed him at 7lbs 7oz yippee! That's for all the doubters out there :-) Or maybe from my friend's weight gain shakes!?! Anyway, the doctor assured me Brandt could not have gained 2.5 lbs in two weeks, and one of those measurements has to be skewed, yeah yeah. We're counting on the 7lb one!! Go Brandt . . .
Here's a couple pics of his nursery. It's not finished, but in good shape for him to make a quick recovery and come home with us! The bassinet was his Daddy's when he was a baby, and the quilt was handmade by friends of his aunt's in New Hampshire who do this for special needs babies. In fact the knitted blanket was specially made for him too -- lots of love for this little guy already . . . we love you Brandt!
