"For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made
in the secret place, when I was woven together
in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my
unformed body; all the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be."
Psalm 139: 13-16
If your baby has just been diagnosed...
There is a lot of practical information to be found there. It may also be overwhelming, so remember, every child's hydro journey is different.
Also, everyone tends to focus on ventricle measurements- I know we did when we first found out about Meghan's hydro. If I can offer one piece of advice: while the "numbers" or the "prognosis" may be severe, the brain is an amazing creation, and no one can predict what an individuals outcome will be. So read, be prepared, take things one day at a time- and always, always have HOPE.
