Results Are In


Thursdays ultrasound was fairly uneventful.  The hardest part was because Roo needed an empty stomach for the u/s, she wasn’t allowed to eat for 3 hours prior to the procedure.  That made for an angry and sad baby.  She sobbed the entire ultrasound.  It was funny (and cool) to see the inside of her body.  It looked nothing like I’ve seen before even with the number of ultrasounds I’d had when I was pregnant.

Next up was the blood work.  I felt so bad for my little one.  She was unhappy but I don’t blame her.  As soon as I was able to nurse her, she calmed down instantly.

Luckily, the doctor called the next day and said everything looked great!  Roo has no internal hemangiomas.  We will go back in five weeks to see the dermatologist as a part of monitoring the external ones but all looks good for her internally.

Thanks to you all for the prayers and good thoughts!

Ultrasound


On Thursday morning, Roo is going in for two ultrasounds: one on her torso and one on her head.  The dermatologist who looked at the hemangiomas on Roo’s body last week recommended we get an ultrasound to make sure there are no internal hemangiomas.  Who knew those were possible?  I barely even knew what a hemangioma outside of the body was before last week!

For those of you who don’t know what they are, you can read more about them on PubMed.

In addition to the ultrasound, she has to have some blood drawn and we need to collect three stool samples to make sure there is no internal bleeding.  YIKES!

I’m most nervous about not feeding her for three hours before the u/s.  Poor baby will be hungry and cranky!  I feel bad for the poor person who has to do the u/s.  I also feel bad that she will have to get another blood draw.  My poor little baby girl has had so many medical procedures done on her in her short life.  I hope that she feels ok after.

So, think of us on Thursday morning and I’ll keep you all posted once we get the results.
