Videos Moved

I’ve moved all of Namine’s videos to their very own channel (as opposed to grouping them by keyword in a larger channel). It may take a while for the changes to get updated on the blog, so you can check them out here in the meantime.

No Surgery Today: Addendum

We found out later today that the doctors do not believe Namine’s throat is infected. I edited the previous post, but in case anyone is subscribing to the blog’s feed, I wanted to make sure you received the update. The other thing I want to mention before going to bed is that her heart rate…

No Surgery Today

I have some good news and some bad news. First, the bad news. Namine will no longer have heart surgery today. The doctors discovered a hole in her throat, caused by the high pressure from the air tube. It is NOT infected, and they are confident that she will heal quickly. Since she needs help…

Quick Update, and a Video

Hello all. I’ve uploaded several videos to Youtube, and they should show up in the now-live video sidebar. I also want to draw your attention to one in particular, because Namine really opened her eyes for us last night. I promised myself I wouldn’t make any cooing noises at her, but you can see how…

Wide Awake

Baby Update

Dear Friends and Family,I met with another doctor the reviews the ultrasounds and when he was scanning me I could see her little legs, or at least one of them. To me and this is my personal opinion it looks like just one of her legs is shortened. So keep praying because she keeps stretching:)…

Baby News

Hello to all,It is June 30th and I have gone once again to have a Bio Physical Profile, and up until this point we (Paul and myself) believed that the baby had a mild form of caudal regression. Today we met with the first doctor that diagnosed the baby the first time and he was…

The Baby

Hey there you all. I just want to update you on the news that we got yesterday from the doctor. The baby is a girl and this is how things are looking from here. She will have to have surgery right after she is born, because the valve pumping to the lungs is bigger than…

Doctor Stresses

In December of last year, Jess and I found out we were pregnant. Okay, she was pregnant, but I think I might have had something to do with it, too. Jess is diabetic, and that means the baby has a statistically higher risk of ending up with one or more defects. The doctor took her…
