”There is always someone that will come to you and will suddenly change your life...”
“Prayer really works”
“God is our hope”
These sayings became a realization to us. We thought we planned everything what we need and it seems to be perfect.
Last December 29, 2018 marks the most memorable date of our life (water bag incidentally punctured). Our time suddenly stopped. Then came Dec. 31, 2018 which marks the most precious baseline (baby girl was born). It became the basis of how strong we could be and how we can bounce back. It seems to be one day at a time and in this journey we realize the following hidden blessings:
1. At 24th week of pregnancy the anomaly scan cleared our baby to any malformation. During the 30th week we did a 3D scan (Dec. 21, 2018). Vermis cleft (partial underdeveloped part of the brain which is responsible for the balance and motor skills) and dilated colonic bowel (obstruction in intestine) were identified. During the post natal scan, the vermis cleft was something we should not be worried because the small cyst found was something that can be outgrown by our baby as advised by the pedia neuro doctor.
2. Concurrent with the post natal scan, abdominal XRAYs were done to check if the dilated colonic bowel is still present and unfortunately it is. On the brighter side, the prenatal scan saved our baby from the standard protocol of nurses/doctors to feed our baby. It would worsen and may cause the intestine to complicate our baby’s digestive system. It’s a good call that we waited for a pediatrician surgeon’s assessment.
As of today (January 7, 2018), the baby’s intestine is not yet functioning(4 days since the surgery), but as per the Doctor we should wait and see (normally this will take 1-2 weeks). We are praying really hard that all will function as soon as possible.
Please pray for our daughter. Please pray with us.
Heavenly Father, we thank you for the gift of life. We pray for Jianna Felicity, may you send her your Holy Spirit and heal her from any sickness. May she grow normal after the operation. No more anomalies and may all will be well in the help of her guardian angel. Mama Mary cover her with your mantle of love just like how you took care of Jesus. This we ask in Jesus name AMEN!
We will be forever grateful to your prayers.
If it’s not a bother we are knocking your kind heart, we are in need of financial assistance for baby Jianna Felicity. She is still in NICU as of today of Medical City Hospital. Any amount will help us to sustain the medication of baby until she recover and gain her normal growth.
