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.
