2nd Best News...so far.

So today has been a GREAT day! For those of you who don't know, Neena had a T.I.A.-LIKE event back in March. After much blood testing it was determined that Neena had a genetic blood disorder called a "Protein-S Defeciency." You've probably heard of the drug Cumidin, a blood thinning drug. Well, because Neena is pregnant she had to take a therapeutic dose of a weaker blood thinner called, "LOVENOX." This came in the form of a 40mg shot that was to be taken each night. It's a painful shot, with an added burn. This was not good news for us because Neena doesn't like shots and it changed how we were to deliver...in short, Neena was a possible high risk pregnancy with a risk of bleeding too much.

We were sent to a Parinatologist for a consultation to see if Neena was indeed going to be a high risk at delivery. The doc reviewed all of Neena's blood test results and asked several questions. After our visit she wanted to take a closer look because during pregnancy EVERYONE has a slight protein-s defeciency. WELLLLLLLLL...today we got a call from the parinatologist and she stated that Neena does NOT have a genetic blood disorder and therefore does NOT have to take the shots anymore. She is deemed a low risk and perfectly normal!!!!! YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

We also went to our normal OB/GYN today and Brodee is getting bigger and stronger. His little heart rate is perfect and Neena is tracking and gaining perfectly not a pound to small or big. SO ALL IS WELL!!! And to all who have been praying....THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!!!

I, however, have a sinus infection...yuck. So I'm off to sleep and try and get better. Thanks again! And in case you're wondering about the title, the First best news was finding out that we were having a boy. There, now you may go and rest easy.
