Shortly after we got home we got a call from the hospital, saying that they had detected some abnormalities. Specifically:
- Instead of two lateral ventricles in the brain, they only detected one, and
- They detected some abnormalities in the face (which I understand is common when there are problems in the brain), and
- the baby's kidneys are abnormally large as well.
We are scheduled for another ultrasound, and more tests, at a larger medical facility in Sacramento on Monday. It's hoped that the doctors will be able to get a feel for the extent of the abnormalities and the baby's prognosis at that time.
So, as I mentioned in the title to this post, prayers are definitely needed. Tonya and I are still a little numb from the news.
