Needing Prayers

This post would get much too long if I were to go into the details of the past two days, so I'll summarize.

Yesterday, we had an appointment with my regular OB.  We learned we are having another BOY!

We also learned the baby's heart is not beating properly.  It's going too fast and he is experiencing some tachycardic episodes.  The Dr. called my high risk OB and got us in today.  Basically, our little boy's has been diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia.  His heart is beating very quickly.  The doctor has put me on blood pressure medicine that will cross the placenta to try to slow his heart down.  He says I will be pretty fatigued, but that should be the only major side effect.

He also made an appointment for us with a pediatric cardiologist for Tuesday for another ultrasound and to see if the meds are helping. 

We needs prayers to be going up for our little guys heart to slow and the tachycardia to be gone!



By the way, his name is Jakin Isaac.  Jakin means "God will establish" and Isaac means "laughter".

Praying for sweet Jakin!! Loooove the name. I was going to mention MckMama's blog, but I see that Marie beat me to it! Stellan is exactly one year older than Keevia, and November 7th celebrated his first RE birthday! He was diagnosed with SVT in-utero, but then it came back around 3 months. Surgery was a success (with a HUGE help from God!) and he is totally and completely SVT healed! You might go to her blog and check it out. She educated herself immensely and blogged about it -- she got it in good laymans terms too! I followed her blog until recenetly (when I honestly don't have time to read!). She's a wonderful, Godly woman!
