What's Going On?

We had an ultrasound today, and Malachi had a measurement in his brain that was abnormal. It is not necessarily a problem; in fact, there is a good chance everything is fine. But it is customary to see a specialist in this situation. So, we are going to a specialist. They will do another ultrasound. Possibly other tests. And we will hopefully find out that the tech made a mistake, or that it doesn't mean anything.

Google says that most babies with this particular abnormality are totally fine. But some have developmental delays. So as far as "issues" go, it could be worse.

But really, I don't care what the chances are, or what Google says. Parents worry over every little thing. Colds, grades, attitudes, girlfriends, etc., etc., etc. So, I guess this is just my first Thing. The first Thing in a string of Things that will hopefully last the rest of my life. Maybe over the years I can learn to be at peace with these things a little at a time.

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. They have carried me through this day.


  1. Will pray for this. If it makes you feel any better, Nehemiah's kidneys measured large (or his ureters - I can't remember). I had to go back for another u/s and it seemed better although "large normal." Anyway, he turned out fine. I also had a large amount of amniotic fluid and they were worried - the internet said it could indicate some types of abnormalities, but he turned out fine! The Dr. told me later, well, the ultrasound is just a "screening" test!!! Rest well, it is God knitting that little one together and He knows what He's doing!
