Lethal Malformations

5/19/09 – DAY 29

Here are some encouraging verses I received from a friend today.
"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see" - Hebrews 11:1

"The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing." - Zephaniah 3:17

5/19 12:47 am - Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. ~Hellen Keller

5/19 7:30 am - Happy 4 week birthday, Rebekah! On Thursday, you will be one month old! Thank you, Lord, for allowing me time with your beautiful little creation.

In researching options for her apnea, I came across an OH Dept of Health doc that had this to say about T-18:
Lethal Malformations - trisomy 18, trisomy 13, anencephaly, or renal agenesis/potter’s syndrome, as listed under paragraph (V) of rule 3701-84-01 of the Ohio Administrative Code.
Trisomy 18 - a medical diagnosis involving trisomy of chromosome 18, which causes severe deformity and mental retardation and is characterized by prominent occiput, overlapping of index finger over third finger, frequent facial abnormalities, straight nose coming off sharply from the forehead, low-set ears, and cleft palate and lip.

We thank you, Lord, for our little Lethal Malformation!

Daddy Time!

Happy 4 Weeks!
