Fever Pitched

It's 1:30 a.m., and we just finished a biophysical profile via ultrasound with the perinatologist. Poor guy never gets any sleep, and he still has a surgery tonight. Both boys passed the biophysical proile. Wyatt still has absent end flow but no consistent signs of reversal. He also has very little deep pockets of amniotic fluid, as the doctor said, "he's saran wrapped to the side of the uterus." They are both breathing regularly and moving well.

To the events of the day. We found out that the C-section is not scheduled until 4 p.m. tomorrow due to either the OB or the OR, anyways it's one of the O's. Randi was not very happy after seeing the bad heart rate tracings and remembering that Wyatt has been in reverse end diastolic flow for over a week. She was ready to evict these babies today. We were very close to transferring hospitals today and taking our chances there. At least that way, if the situation becomes emergent, we would all be at the right location. The only flaw in that plan is that the nurses at the other hospital would cut our perinatologist out of the loop if something went wrong, and we didn't want that.

So, at 8 am in the morning Randi and I are transferring hospitals. The perinatologist is going with us to expedite the situation. Hopefully, we will have time for a consult with the neonatologist that will be taking care of the boys when they finally do come. From what I understand, the OR will be a packed house of controlled chaos with standing room only.

Hope you guys can get some shut eye before the big event! If you have time, and if you feel comfortable, will you share with us if the dr's have given you an approx. time frame that the boys will be in the NICU? Does either one have to go through a surgery? Praying for you all today!

Your already such a wonderful mother. NEVER EVER just put faith with the lives of your children in a doctor and from what I have just read your not! Going to a diff. hospital is the best thing. they are almost here and remember that your boys are healthy and normal they have no idea anything is wrong!!!!

Lots of love,

Kricty
