be still and know...

That He is God.

As you can see from my previous post -we had our 20-week ultrasound this morning. It was (as always) wonderful to see on screen the life that's growing... lots of kicks and wiggles; a strong, beating heart; arms, hands, fingers, toes, legs...

We found out at the end of our appointment that our ultrasound revealed what appears to be several cysts on Baby's right kidney... so we are being referred to the University of Michigan for follow-up (fancier ultrasounds and docs who specialize in prenatal kidney issues). We don't know much right now, so we're just in a holding pattern... until Thursday morning and our next round of testing is done, there's no reason to get too worked up.

I am sad that we didn't get "Hey, your baby looks perfect!!" today - but God is good all the time, and there is much to be thankful for.

Prayers for peace and health are much appreciated - I'll be sure to post an update when we have one.

Katie, for some encouragement, go check out my friend Shelley's blog (on my list of friends and family). Their daughter was also prenatally diagnosed with all kinds of kidney problems--and has turned out to be perfectly healthy in every way. It might help you to read their story as you wait for more information. :)
