Miller's cranial ultrasound came back and the findings aren't as ecouraging as we'd hoped. With all of his other tests going so well, the staff really expected his grade (severity of the bleed) be in the 1 to 2 range. Miller's was a 4. It was contained to one area on one side, but it is concerning. What does this mean?
Unfortunately, they can't tell us. According to the doctors, a lot of the pre-term babies having bleeding and most of them get through it with no problem. However, with the bleeding, there is a higher risk of problems down the road.
So, the bottom line is that we hoped not to see any bleeding at all on the scan. The fact that we did see some bleeding concerns us, but it's not devastating. We knew there would be setbacks and I think this is our first one. Tomorrow's a new day.
Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers. Love, Danny and Stephanie
