I have a friend who needs your prayers. Kimberly from Happily Henninger is 10 weeks pregnant and is living through a bit of a scare right now. I'll let her explain in her words...
"We are having to visit a perinatal specialist tomorrow for a second opinion of something Dr. Odom saw on the ultrasound. In the brain area he saw a little "halo" type shape where the brain was forming and thinks it might be a cystic hygroma. This is were fluid is trapped in the neck and cannot get out and causes lumps to form. The spinal area looked great, but it was just the halo around the brain that he is concerned about from the ultrasounds. There are a few different things that can happen here (coming from the Dr.). This can go away by itself or it could be a chromosomal dysfunction. A typical abnormality is Turner's syndrome."
This sweet woman has already experienced the loss of her baby boy Hudson. Please pray that there isn't anything to worry about and that her baby is perfectly healthy. She will be keeping us updated. Go to her blog for updates or to just leave words of encouragement.
