My oldest daughter is pregnant and she is due on February 27th. You always hope for a easy pregnancy and that everything will be ok, but about 3 months ago, our world stopped for a little while. We did find out that she is having a boy and his name is Nathan Tyler. Brandi and her husband had to go to Florida to get another ultrasound because there was something they were not sure that they were seeing. To make it as simple as possible, the 4th chamber of the baby's heart was not developing. That broke my heart because my daughter has looked forward to this pregnancy for a while. Well, they started throwing all sorts of things at them about needing to deliver in different cities, downs symdrome, other complications and so on. First time parents know so little about having a baby and being parents as it is and then throw all this other on them, it was very overwhelming for them. To make a long story short and for the good news, they ended up doing a amnio (which she was not sure she wanted to do at all), because the doctor really wanted it, and everything came back fine. There will be a surgery after the baby is born to correct the heart, we go Jan. 12 to talk to a cardiologist and find out all the details. Yes, she may have to deliver away from home, but as long as they take care of our sweet baby Nathan, I'm for anywhere. Please keep Brandi, Nathan, and the whole family in your prayers, that everything will be fine. And I also expect a miracle, because I know God can do it. I'll keep you posted as we find out more.
