God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

Anna Grace - December 14

Today was a very good appointment with Dr. G. Anna Grace's heartbeart was strong & steady at 158 BPM. My amniotic fluid looked good and the fluid on her abdomen has NOT increased (Praise God)! While I was there Anna Grace was practicing breathing - apparently this is a normal thing babies at this age do in-utero and it means that she is being a "normal" baby :) She was also so very active that the ultrasound tech could hardly get the pictures that she needed - also a very good sign that she is doing well today. I also had the privilage of looking at her face today which I have to brag on...... she has the chubbiest little cheeks you have ever seen AND we also noticed that she has some little fat rolls on her legs. What joy it brought to me that I just had to share it with you too!!!!

So... things went SO well at today's visit that I don't have to go back to see Dr. G again until Thursday - unless of course I notice a decrease in her movement between now & then.

There is still much to be in prayer over.... that her little heart will continue to sustain her, that the fluid on her abdomen will remain as it is or decrease, that she will continue to gain weight and strength, that she will be able to remain in my womb until December 30. There is also SO MUCH to be praising God for.... truly everything about today's visit was an answered prayer. Thank you all for continuing to be faithful to pray for our sweet Anna Grace!

What a great report from Dr. G! We were very pleased with the care we received from his office. And you will NOT find a better team of surgeons, doctors and nurses than at MUSC. Your little Anna Grace will be in the best hands! Will Dr. B do her surgery or Dr. H? Our son Chase was born at MUSC on Oct. 26th, had his Norwood at 7 days old. Less than 3 weeks later, we stepped down to 7C and were discharged when Chase was 5 weeks old! I am praying for you, your sweet girl and all of the team at MUSC who will be caring for her. God will see you through the road ahead! Also know you have us "heart moms" to help you along this journey! God bless!

Thank you for your encouragement & sharing your story about Chase with us. We look forward to sharing our story with you & others and look forward to the day when Anna Grace & Chase will be able to play together. What a great day that will be! Either Dr B or Dr S will be doing Anna Grace's surgery - we haven't met Dr H yet but I'm sure we will during our stay at MUSC.
