If you don't mind...

We're going back to the specialist on Wednesday. We're having an ultrasound at 9:30 followed by another echocardiogram at 11:30. The cardiologist should be able to tell us more about what exactly is wrong with the baby's heart and what type of surgery he'll need. And we should be able to see if there are other "markers" for any genetic conditions. 

CJay and I have really enjoyed these past 2 months without the visits to the specialist. It's been so nice to have what feels like a "normal" pregnancy - baby kicks, a growing belly, talks of cribs and diapers. I'm trying not to focus on what Wednesday will bring, but I have to prepare emotionally. It's like padding up for a football game. It's too risky not to be ready for that physical and emotional blow. 

So if you don't mind... please pray for us and baby Roberts. We're gonna need it.

Chason and I will also be praying. I am so thankful you had the last two months where the two of you could follow your own feelings and make your baby preparations. I pray this sweet time is followed with encouraging news.
