Isn’t it crazy how you can go from such a high in life, and then to an ultimate crash? That’s what happened this week to us.
I told you I would keep you guys posted on the baby, and yesterday we did find out she has CPAM, Congenital pulmonary airway malformation. You can read more about it on this site.
We are scared, living in fear now each day, and just praying. Right now the mass is at a ok size, and as long as it doesn’t get to 1.6, we will be ok. If it does get to that point, that is a danger zone and could be life threatening for the baby.
I really am just in shock still, but so grateful that the baby is still doing ok, heart beating, and I know people face bigger problems than this. I always look at the bigger picture when things happen in my life, and I always try to stay positive.
It is a lot for us over here right now. We went from being so excited to find out we were having a girl, to the next day getting scary news. I will now be monitored weekly, an ultrasound will be done to check on growth of the mass. PLEASE just keep her in your prayers, I am doing my best to stay above and not crash. I know I have to be strong for this baby, myself, my husband, and kids.
Even though Mike’s birthday was not how we planned it to go, as life never is. We made the best of it!
He got Chipotle per request!
I decorated, as I love to do! Rocco pulled some streamers, as some were missing you see. Wild man!
Oh, and he was too intrigued by hello kitty to look for the pic! We are keeping her out for the baby, as it makes us smile!
If you want a big smile, I posted a cute video on instagram with hello kitty <3
I got him his favorite cake! Cookie dough from Dairy Queen, mini cake style! Perfect size! We crammed it!
Rocco helped daddy blow candles! He lovesssssssss that!
He had a great birthday, as much as possible. We make the best of every day, no matter how dark it can be. We have to stay positive, have faith, and keep going.
It is crazy, I believe in angels very much and the angel numbers. Well, yesterday after our sad news at doctor, we went to Panera to eat. BTW, Panera is happiness <3
Our bill came to 22.22 , which is an angel number that can show up lots in your life, especially when you need to see the signs that the angels are guiding you.
That day, I was out running an errand , Mike texted me at exactly 2:22. CRAZY.
And when I went to look at comments on my IG post from the morning asking for prayers that evening, my views on that pic were 222.
I know in my heart the angels are guiding us and will be this whole journey. They will protect our baby girl and she will be ok <3
I just had to share that, it is crazy and beautiful <3
For now, I just ask for so many prayers for things to stay stable and ok with her lung. Please just keep the prayers coming, we appreciate them beyond words.
I turned 19 weeks on Wednesday, too. I am so grateful for so much and just grateful for all of you who sent love and support yesterday with the news, and continue to.
We are just going to try to keep busy over here this weekend, as we originally had no plans. My sister and I are going out to eat tonight, and to do some shopping, I leave for Nashville for Beachbody Summit Thursday and need a dress and couple other things for an exclusive 80’s party with Billy Idol that I earned a ticket to. And the rest of weekend up in air, but we plan to keep busy like I said!
Have a great day, friends! Thank you for all the love and prayers!
If you know anyone or personally have had a baby with this condition, please share your experience if you are wanting to. Thank you <3
