Update on Addison

Well, last Tuesday we went in for another ultrasound.  We didn't really learn anything new, except for the fact that she is growing like she is supposed to.  As of last Tuesday, they estimated her weight at 2 lbs 1 oz.  The doctor actually said she has a beautiful heart, which is oh so encouraging.  We are praising God for that.  Since I refused the amniocentesis they cannot really give us much more information than we are still looking at the brain anomaly.  I also won't have to go back for six more weeks instead of four.  Please continue to pray for her and for us.  It's still amazing to me that they asked again if we were continuing this pregnancy.  I am now entering the third trimester.  We will be talking to the neonatologists very soon to discuss with them how much care we would like Addison to receive after birth.  Of course,  since none of us really know how she will be when she is born, we all  want to be on the same page.  As I sit and type she has the hiccups and with all of her moving and kicking all the time, it just seems so unreal that something could be wrong (especially with how big she is getting).  Please continue to pray and I will update you soon.  Thank you for all your prayers.
