Fetal Echocardiogram - 05/06/11

I suppose when it rains, it pours...

Today's appointment did not go well. Sweet Sticky's heart is looking bad.  It is enlarged and has fluid completely around it.  With his failing kidneys, his heart is having to work too hard. I will now be seeing the pediatric cardiologist weekly to keep an eye on his heart's progression.  As soon as she sees that his heart is about to fail, we will have to deliver him.  We have no idea when this might be, but most likely sooner than we would want. 

It seems that God needs Sticky more in Heaven than on Earth. 


  1. This news feels absolutely crushing. I can't understand how things changed so quickly. Prayers, peace, strength, and admiration for you, your husband, and Sweet Sticky.

  2. Lauren,
    We have been thinking about you guys a lot. This is not the news we wanted to hear! We send our love and hope to you, wishing we could do more.

  3. Praying for you, Jon and Sticky so hard! You are so brave. Wishing you peace and hope and sending many hugs.

  4. Lauren,
    We continue to pray for you, for Jon, and for baby sticky bean. You are such an amazing mother and courageous woman. May you find comfort and blessings in the love of so many.
