Head Ultrasound

We heard from the doctor this morning regarding the results of Elise's head ultrasound from yesterday. Let me start by saying that the results, though not completely positive, aren't anything the doctors didn't expect and shouldn't cause major problems. She has grade 1 hemorrhaging in her brain, which is a very small amount of blood. The doctor said it's such a small amount that they almost missed it when they were doing the ultrasound. They will do a follow up head ultrasound in two weeks to check on her. For now we just pray, and they keep a close eye on her progress.

Sending prayers your way. The next few weeks and months are going to have ups and downs, but you will make it through. Trust and know that God is in control. I had 29 week twins (they are now 3)! You would never know now that they were early. May God Bless you and your family.

Tiffany is right. There are so many ups and downs on the roller coaster you are currently on. My daughter had a Grade III IVH. Anything like that is scary. Especially since there is no treatment and it's just a "wait and see" type of thing. At least as Christians we can "wait and see and pray and trust."
