Ultrasound - June 30th

Sticky had an ultrasound this morning and everything was status quo again - yay!  He was pretty quiet during the ultrasound, but he's been moving a lot this afternoon.  I guess he was sleepy.  Sadly, his kidneys are approaching 12 cm!  It is just amazing to me that such a small baby can have such giant kidneys. 

However, the perinatologist seemed optimistic about his lung maturation and thinks the major problem will be his kidneys not leaving room for the lungs to expand.  The good news is there are ways to fix the kidney problems, but no way to fix a lung maturation problem.  As always, thank you for all the continued prayers and/or positive thoughts.  They mean SOOO much!
