sharing Rhett's heart with the world

Finally Some Good News!!

Amanda and I have been trying to stay as positive as possible. Thank you again to everyone who has offered kind words and prayers. So far it looks like it’s working!

Today we finally received some good news for Rhett! Amanda received a phone call today with the results of the MaterniT21 test.

“The MaterniT21 PLUS test is a noninvasive prenatal test that detects fetal chromosomal abnormalities; from common (trisomies 21, 18 and 13) to the more rare (fetal sex aneuploidies, trisomies 16 and 22, and select microdeletions”

The results came back 99% negative! This, along with the Dr’s seeing totally normal growth except the heart has us hoping that ALL we are dealing with is a heart defect (super weird to say…all). Amanda and I are so relieved.

I’ll have Rhett charming the ladies in no time!

We are looking forward to our visit with the Cardiologist June 2nd, but we were notified today of the $1200 price tag that we will have to pay before the appointment. I have insurance, but with all of these tests and visits we ran through the $1500 my company gives for our HRA account, which means we now have to spend another $1500 before we can hit our deductible and insurance starts paying 80% to our 20% until we reach the out of pocket minimum of $10,000 dollars. So all of that is super exciting…

3 things….

1. I thought the math on having a baby was supposed to be as simple as 1 + 1 = 3

2. Kids are expensive pets.

3. So worth it.
