Just a quick update on my pregnancy. For those of you who know my baby has been collecting fluid around it lungs since the mid of November. Every week the fluid has been slowly but steadily increasing. The doctors felt it would eventually build up by mid or late January to the point it would be putting pressure on the already fragile heart and they would have to deliver him early. And as you can imagine preemie and open heart surgery would not be a fun combo. But after finally getting the courage to ask friends and family to fast and pray for the baby to make it to full term the fluid began stabilizing (even decreased a little over the past two and a half weeks). The doctor asked me yesterday how I pulled off a MIRACLE? I said yes in deed, it was! She said she does not plan on delivering me early anymore (as long as the baby continues to control the fluid build-up). Thanks to all and Happy New Year!
