San Francisco Here We Come

So I finally got my amnio results back and all is good to go. I've been on the phone all afternoon with the people at MOM's scheduling flights and insurance companies and all that. I leave Phoenix at 5:50 on Sunday afternoon and Matthew leaves VA at 4:30 and I get to San Fran 30 minutes before he does.

We start our evaluations on Monday the 25th for all day testing and education and talking with surgeons and more testing to make sure that we qualify for the study. Then by Tuesday night we have to say yes we want to continue with the study or no thank you. If we say yes they put us in the computer right then and we find out if we will be staying and have surgery on Thursday the 28th or we come home Wednesday afternoon to come back in 12 weeks.

If we do have to stay we're planning on bringing my mom and Kathryn out in March for my mom's Spring Break. They will have to bring our car seat and other baby things we will need to bring our little Charlotte home. It's going to be really hard to be away from Kathryn for so long. I've only been gone from her for 3 days and that was hard enough. Thank goodness for Skype that we can video conference with her even if we just get to look at her.

I'm also very thankful for Matthew's new employment for letting him come with me for the study. I have to have a support person and his new job is letting him telecommute from San Fran! They have been so supportive and just willing to help us out. We are so blessed to have gotten this position at this time. I don't know what we would have done otherwise. I think the study would have not been one of our options.

Did you catch the name for our little one earlier. Yep we've chosen a name for this little angel, Charlotte Adara. I think it fits her well and Kathryn can even say her name.

Well, Wish us luck, keep us in your prayers and we will for sure keep you posted!
