What a week!

So, I think most of you know what’s going on already…but for those who don’t, here it is. We went to Portland on Friday to have another ultra sound and find out if there really was anything wrong with Baby Turgeon’s heart…and there is. She has AVCD…Complete Atrio Ventricular Canal Defect. Basically the wall that separates the left and right side of her heart didn’t completely develop and she has a hole there. And, the flaps that go between upper and lower left and upper and lower right…there’s supposed to be 4 and theres only 2. It is completely fixable with surgery, but still a little scary. The obstetrician sent us up to the pediatric cardiologist who explained everything to us from start to finish…including the risks (which really aren’t that bad). He is very knowledgable and really nice. The team of doctors at Maine Medical Center in Portland are really great….a lot of them have worked in places like Boston Children’s Hospital. But that’s basically it in a nutshell. We have 2 more appointments in Portland…one in 6 weeks and the other 6 weeks after that. Then, I’ll go in around 39 weeks and they’ll induce me. Matt and I are doing pretty well with everything I think. But definitely keep us in your prayers. =)
