I actually work for one of the ten largest banks in the country. We are doing a complete conversion of some of our core vendor supplied and hosted software. Failure in the project would be big financial news, and not the good kind. The Fed, the FDIC, the SEC, key customers, and key shareholders have been paying A LOT of attention. It can not fail ... period. And the conversion starts on the 16th and lasts until May 2nd.

But no pressure or anything ... [:D]

Quick update: she did pretty good over the weekend (BP stayed below 140/90) but she was back up in the 150s/90 today. When I visited her, she had the "headache look" on her face again. Not good.

They are planning to do the amnio on Wed or Thur and deliver the baby as soon as the test says the lungs are good. Right now it looks like we are still talking about an induction, not a c-section.

The baby is no longer having decels. The guess is that the baby had the cord around her neck or was pinching off the cord and has since gotten it out of the way.

Baby pictures on Monday?

Sounds like good positive news; keep it up. Every day that passes is a success.

Looking forward to reports of healthy lungs, a healthy Gianna and mom, and baby pix on Monday.

Thanks for the update.

Prayers,
Gordon

She had the amnio. She described it as like an IV stick but in your stomach. She said that it did hurt, but not too bad. It was afterwards that she was left with a sore spot that the baby decided to start kicking over and over. Now that did not feel so good.

We will not have the results back until late tonight since they had to send it out to an off-site lab. We are expecting to start the induction in the morning.

And the rollercoaster ride continues.

The tests results came back at 11pm last night and said that her lungs were not quite ready. The peri and OB looked at it this morning and said that the risk is small. They want to induce today knowing that this a risk Gianna could end up in the NICU, but they say it is less than 5%.

So hopefully we will have our little girl tomorrow if past induction times hold true.
