Today I had another doctor's appointment. The ultrasound went just fine. His heart still looks the same and the amount of amniotic fluid stopped its spike and is in the normal range. We passed another non-stress test too. So far, there are no concerns for complications or early labor.
We got notice from the new insurance company in writing that our coverage will start on August 15th. That is a huge relief! Now I just need to check to see if we need any kind of pre-approval for any of the hospital stuff.
Today was also a milestone day. When we met with the baby's surgeon, he told us that if we could get the baby to 36 weeks, he would be able to work with him. Today, we hit 36 weeks. All of us would benefit from the last three weeks, but at least we are to the point where he is viable for the surgery!
Yesterday we sang "Because He Lives" at church. The second verse is "How sweet to hold a newborn baby and feel the pride and joy he gives, but greater still, the calm assurance, this child can face uncertain days because He lives!" I figure that this pretty much sums it up!
Countdown: Three weeks
