Here is the latest email that I received about Joshua:
We got the results back of our amniocentesis. Joshua DOES NOT have any trisomy syndromes! Praise the Lord! This means, he has a better chance of living through a surgery, and it also means he may not have more issues in his body besides the encephalocele. We will go in for a scan of is heart around 26 weeks - in the next 2 to 3 weeks - to rule out cardiac malformations/conditions. Please continue to agree with us in prayer!
1. For a miracle concerning his encephalocele
2. That the encephalocele (*sack with brain matter*) will not grow larger, but begin to grow back inside his skull
3. That his heart is in perfect order
4. That he will continue to be filled with the Holy Spirit (*as we've been continually promised*) while in the womb, in the same way John the Baptist was.
Joshua moved and jumps when he's being prayed for. I find this exciting and encouraging.
Thank you so much for praying for us, we sincerely feel your prayers.
