Ups: Summer school started and I am surprisingly content after its first week. Everyday from 7 - noon I get to enjoy the company of 12 teenagers who need to re-take American History. Fortunately, I only have a couple of students who need an attitude check every now and then. For the most part, my students are working hard and very respectful. Thank you Lord!
The temperature here in KC has been scorchingly HOT. And, I like it. Why? Well, I've always been a fish in the summertime and lately, I've gotten some use out of my new maternity bathing suit. I finally have some tan lines. I hope the vitamin D surge is good for baby Eli!

Downs: Our follow up sonogram showed that the fluid in Eli's right kidney had nearly doubled in amount. At our last sonogram is read 5.4 mm so he has now graduated from mild unilateral pylectasis to unilateral hydronephrosis. This means that we will be visiting a Perinatologist (high-risk pregnancy specialist) on Thursday for a level two ultrasound. These ultrasounds show much more accurate and detailed images. The Perinatologist should be able to answer our questions and tell us what we can expect from here. As you can imagine, both Mike and I were very bummed when the tech told us that the conditioned had worsened so quickly. I held it together at the doctor's office but broke down once I got to the car. However, it has been one week since then and I am very proud of how well I've been able to keep it together and am again amazed by the peace that the Lord has given me.
Informative sight on Hydronephrosis:
I haven't been as productive as I planned in my first week of summer. I sure hope that I get some motivation soon! I've got a lot to do before Eli comes!
Baby Milestones this Week: That oh-so-handy sense of equilibrium is kicking in, and Eli's learning to distinguish right side up from upside down.
