     We had an appointment with the high risk OB doctor today, and it was uneventful!  Trust me, this is the word you want to use to describe these appointments!  The amniotic fluid level has decreased and is now in the high normal range.  All the baby's organs looked good.  His femurs are a little shortened, which is expected in a child with Down Syndrome, and the doctor is not concerned at all.  This has Eddie concerned, maybe because he is afraid he doesn't have a future playing for the Kentucky Wildcats.  Even considering his shortened femurs, his is growing well, he already weighs 4 pounds 7 ounces!  Unless something comes up, I just have to go back in 4 weeks and check on his growth.  This will likely be my last visit there.  I now have to see my OB once a week, which is better than the twice a week I was expecting.
    We appreciate all the prayers, kind words, and support.  Based on the comments we are receiving from Facebook and in person, we think that hundreds of people are praying for him.  We truly believe that this is why everything is going as well as it is, because it certainly could be going the other way.   Hopefully future posts will be cute baby pictures and funny stories!
