Happy Zac :)

Hubby and I went to see my baby's specialist again today. We arrived at the hospital 15mins before our 8AM appointment and oh my! I was soo sleepy. I am not a morning person so thank God we only need to see his specialist once a month lol!. Like the usual procedure, they checked baby Zac's heart, brain (size and cerebellum), lungs, diaphragm, stomach, arms and legs and of course they focused on his kidneys via ultrasound.

After checking everything, the specialist talked to us and told us that the volume of fluid they found in his kidneys is A BIT higher than last month. This time it is 0.2 higher BUT she said that we don't have to worry because baby Zac's weight got doubled which means his kidney's size is twice than last month. His weight was only 2.5 lbs. last month and now he weighs 4.5 lbs. YEHEY! I guess that also explains why I gained 6lbs this month of October LOL! His ureter is NOT swollen and the Amniotic fluid has just the right amount.

The specialist was happy to tell us that baby Zac is doing better and guess what? She named him "HAPPY ZAC" aww! lol!. The reason why she named him that is because they had a hard time taking ultrasound pics of him because he keeps on moving around my belly (like he ALWAYS does) like he is dancing or getting busy about something hehe!

I am happy about the result of our visit to the hospital today and I hope that his kidneys will get better and better soon :) And oh! baby Zac has some tiny hairs now on his head, sweeeet! lol!

To our baby: Mommy and Daddy loves you Baby Zac AKA Happy Zac :)

  3. happy to hear things are going well with you, and the baby. i will keep you in my prayers! I have been. friday i take my young one for another surgery her renal problems just keep getting worse. this is why i'm back to hear your good news! I am happy for your family.

  4. Hi Diana,

    May God bless your beautiful heart. I read your blog and thank you for praying for my son.

    Please don't lose hope and always remember that your beautiful one will always be in my prayer.

    God bless you and your family.

  5. thank you so much, means alot to me.. before you and the other lady, i only knew of one person and that was when my daughter was 6mo? maybe 1yr old and they had a child who was 16yrs old and just recieved a transplant. So i to am overwhelmed and excited to know about you. I'm sorry it has fallen under these circumstance, with your husband being a nurse.. i'm sure his insight will help out alot. If not already.. you will even find yourself reading and learning about your son's medical issue's more then ever. To help you.. helps me heal, if you can understand that.. i think it took about 3yrs for everything to sink in, and my mind understand what was happening and how i was going to move forward in life.. but it happens, we made it to 6yrs old. They doubted she would make it to age 8, so thats our.. round about age before needing a transplant, I HOPE.. WISH, this is something your son can grow out of, i read on the other mothers blog how huge in CM's her son kidney grew did they tell you this yet? would ease my mind on the scale of what i know.. and visually eveything seems scary, but.. through all this i trust GOD the DR and my daughter. I hope you are transporting him to a children's hospital or a place that is equiped with a NICU?? this is important, also question if natural birth verses c-section is OK for you, Ava was 8lbs and to me just a large baby i would never of been able to have natural birth.
