At our last appointment with the cardiologist and the specialist, it was clear to CJay and me that it was time to make the transition; we know now that we have no choice where we'll deliver. We need to be at the University of Virginia hospital. Fortunately, we had the opportunity to meet with a neonatologist who answered all our questions as we walked the floors of the PICU, NICU, and labor and delivery. He mapped out possible scenarios and loaded us with information. It was just what we needed. In November, we left the hospital with little knowledge of what would happen after the baby was born - who would take him? would we see him? could we hold him? We still don't like some of the answers, but at least we have a better idea of what we'll be facing. CJay and I can handle it (with God's grace, of course).
In more "normal" baby news, we've registered at Target and Babies R Us. Our nursery furniture will be delivered tomorrow - boxed up in a million tiny pieces, just for CJay's enjoyment. We haven't painted the room yet, but it's on the ever-growing to-do list. (The clock is ticking and it's getting louder.) AND we have an appointment this Friday for a 3D ultrasound! We're hoping the baby cooperates so we can have some clear pictures of his face. I can't wait to see how much more hair he's grown in the past couple weeks. I think we counted 6 or 7 little sprigs at the last ultrasound. Very cute. I'll post the 3D pictures as soon as possible.
* For those of you who don't know, we have picked a name for Baby Roberts, but we're not telling. :)
