Starting tuesday I will be going to our regular ob twice a week for ultrasound and non stress test. Oct. 24 our care will be transfered to CHOP. I will be 34 weeks. I hope at that time they will be able to tell when they will do c-section or induction.
Thank you all for all of the prayers and support.

I will also beable to continue to see my Docs at hunterdon for another 4 weeks. Oct 24th ( @ 34 weeks) I will need to start to go to CHOP weekly. They also think I will need a c-section due to the fibriod that is near my cervix. I am not too crazy about that, but at least we can plan a little bit. Thank you all for your prayers and support. They are working!!

Right before I saw that Kaden had passed, Emily found the latest ultrasound picture of Sydney. It was taken last week . When the tech handed it to me I had no idea what it was. I showed it to Gary and he could not tell either. Tonight Emily looked at it and she saw right away that it was the baby's face. You can see her nose and lips, her eyes and ears. It really is the best picture of her face yet. I know it is going to sound crazy, but I believe that it is a sign from God and Sydney that she will be ok.
Please continue to pray for her.

On July 15, 2008 we found out that we were having a baby girl. Gary and I were so excited, but that excitement soon turn to concern and then quickly to fear. The doctors told us that the baby had a severe birthdefect called Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). The baby's diaphram did not develope properly and her stomache, liver and most of her intestines are in her chest cavity. This prevents the lungs from developing. We were referred to Childrens Hospital Of Philadelphia (CHOP). At CHOP we foung out just how serious this defect is. Our baby girl was given a 10% chance of survival.
She will have to be born at CHOP and then placed on life support. Most likely she will be put on a machine called ECMO. This removes the blood from her body and is oxygenated then returned, giving the lungs time to rest. She will then have surgery to remove the organs out of her chest and put where they belong and a patch will be made out of Gortex to act as the diaphram. She has a very big fight ahead of her.
When we came home from CHOP we decided to name her Sydney Ann Taborelli.
