  2. Growing!

    Okay, so first...I went to the doctor yesterday and like I figured, they couldn't really tell us much of anything new. BUT, there was good news. I got to watch her practice breathing on the ultrasound which almost made me cry. It was beautiful and for some reason just really struck me. There has been no change really in her diagnosis. Her stomach is still up, her heart is still squished, and she is still a little smaller than average. She has grown though, and the doctor actually seemed excited ...

  3. Baby Gavin

    Well on April 18th baby Gavin is going to undergo surgery in mommys tummy. The procedure is very new, and cutting edge, but it's been successful thus far, and should help his little lungs grow.

  5. 2/23/12 Yearly appointment with the surgeon

    Ethan is doing great. He saw his surgeon yesterday. She did an xray for which he was scared at first, but willingly got it done when he found out he was getting a balloon. The doctor said his diaphragm was still high on the right side and that she thought his lung would have grown more by now. But that it could still grow up until 7 or 8 years old. It looked like his liver may be pushing up on the patch but nothing looked really unusual or out of the ordinary for him. She will see him next ...
