Baby coming in a week

Yes, sounds like the good doctor wants to induce Mimi on Monday night. The goal is to have the baby on Tuesday morning so that the neo-natal team will be together and fresh with a good nights sleep. If all goes as planned, Mia will be born on Tuesday morning. They want to control the circumstances of the birth, which will allow the team to be prepared. The plan is the have the birth naturally and as soon as Mia is born, ship her over to Childrens Hospital until a donor heart becomes available. It seems our long wait is coming to an end. It has been long anticipated, so we are very excited to meet our sweet little baby. AND, last Thursday we received really good news from Dr. Stephaneli that Mia's heart wasn't leaking as much and that he didn't see any reason to take another look at mia's heart for another two weeks. (This is a big deal) Well, by the looks of things, he won't be able to see baby again in the Tummy, but as a new born baby. Yeah!

I'm so glad that you posted something about Mia! I have been worried about you guys because you hadn't posted anything in a while. I wrote Jo Dee last night asking if she had heard from you. You guys are always in my thoughts and I will be double thinking about you on Monday/Tuesday and beyond. Lot of love to you and give that belly one last squeeze from Teacher Lauri.

I will pray for Mimi and Mia. Please contact me with any questions. It is so different to see your family go through this experience with previous knowledge that Mia needs a heart. I wonder how different our experience would have been if we had known before of Beckham's defect. I am so glad that you are in such good hands with the medical staff. You are coming to the end of the beginning! You are such a great, strong family and Mia was supposed to come to you!

Can't wait to see pictures of sweet little Mia. She sounds like such a fighter already! Mimi is your mom going to be able to stay with you for a while? I hope so! Good luck with everything, and I hope all goes well with the delivery. We are headed to Heber for July 4th weekend, but I will be checking in to see how everything goes... thank goodness for blogging! Much love and prayers!
