Tommy Update

So as some of you know little Tommy had an enlarged Kidney during his 20 week ultrasound. This ultrasound sent us to Anchorage a couple weeks later. We where told that it wasn't that bad and it was likely that it would correct itself before he was born. So he had an Ultrasound on the day he was born and all looked normal... well you must be asking yourself why i bring it up now... Well we had another ultrasound and it is Enlarged again... i guess babies are dehydrated when they are born and that is why his kidney looked normal.

This completely scared me... so many things went through my head... luckily we went and spoke to one of the doctors and he explained everything. And there is nothing we could have done to prevent this and there is a 1 in 10 change that he will need surgery but it usually fixes itself. So we won't find out wether or not he needs the surgery until the 28th of January and if he does he has to be 6months old to have it... Also this is pretty commen and it's nothing to worry about... so we'll just keep praying and be thankful that he is healthy otherwise.
