James and I began this blog at the very beginning of our pregnancy with Wyatt to share and update our new adventures as we became pregnant and start the new season of parenthood. Sixteen weeks into pregnancy, I had to go into surgery to ensure our son would not come too early and shortly after, we found out Wyatt has Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). This is our humble attempt at being transparent and hopefully sharing the joys and love of Christ through this roller coaster ride we're on. And now to share even more with the new miracle on the way.

Day 75: Wyatt was sleeping this morning when I came in. I got there earlier than normal bc they weren't totally sure what time he would head over to children's for his MRI. They give you a "time" but it's not always that time :). We went over around 12:30. It was t as traumatic as sending him into surgery but its still hard not knowing what's going on. I kept James updated via text while he was at work. It took every second of 2 hours, maybe a little more. I kept my self busy with a hefty todo list. Wyatt came out wide eyed and alert as always. They said he was great and then about 10 minutes in, he was done! He was crying and had to be calmed down. After that they said he was in and out of sleep but not still at all so they're hoping they got some good images. We headed back on over to Parkland (it's just a hallway) and we attempted nursing again. We cuddled and dad joined us. :). It was a good day. I'm just hoping the MRI produces good results. The echo from yesterday showed fluid on his lungs again so the doctors put him back on the dietetics- that medicine that is like water pills for 5 days and then he'll get another echo. The earliest Wyatt could possibly come home at this point is about 2 weeks but my gut feeling from the doctors talk, it's looking more like a month. Discouraging. Bleh! They change doctors all the time and all have been great but some just seem so much more positive and eager to get him home to us! All in God's timing, He knows best. I/we just need to be patient. :).
