Yesterday was our first visit with the High Risk OB. We got some great pictures (as you can see) of a very active, healthy baby. Dr Farkouh got all kinds of ultrasound measurements and pictures and some blood work. Everything looks great! She wants to continue monthly ultrasounds and checkups as we go through the chemo even though we will also be seeing the regular OB. Pray that the team can come to a wise decision about a delivery date. The HR OB wants to wait until 34 weeks – she says baby will stay about 2 weeks in the hospital and go home normal. The Medical Oncologist (Dr Cook) wants to take the baby around 30 weeks so that she can switch to a stronger chemo. Dr Farkouh says that would greatly increase the risk of a complication (like cerebral palsy) and will take more time and treatment in neonatal care. Tomorrow we meet with the radiation oncologist and see what she (Dr Clem) says about all this.
The visit went well though, we like the HR OB (all of our team has been great).
Today’s adventure – getting Amy’s hair cut. Not my favorite part of this at all, but I have to admit Jen did a great job, she does look cute and younger – she looks great for a cancer patient. Maybe I will get a picture in tomorrow.
Pray for our morning visit – thanks
