Update on Kendall

Here is the latest from Alexis and Ashley (an excerpt from their email):

Here is the latest update ...

I just came back from having the sonogram scan ... the bloodflow to the placenta has gotten worse since yesterday, but it is not at the point where I have to deliver this afternoon, so we are very happy about that. Tomorrow, we will also find out how big she is measuring ... we are hoping she is at least 2.5 lbs and could be close to 3 lbs ... but we'll have to wait and see.

I've had some high but not to the worse limits of the best blood pressure readings today, so we are good with that... they've not been bad enough to make me deliver today, so we are thankful for that.

Baby Kendall is doing great still ... she's great on the fetal heart monitor ... because of the results of the sonogram scan, we are increasing the monitoring of her to at least 3 times a day, to keep a close eye on her. Although the bloodflow to her placenta is lessened, and there is more damage to the placenta, she still have plenty of amino fluid and the placenta is holding together right now ... all of these things are positives and will give us just another day.

Just keep the family in your prayers and when I hear more, I will let you know.

Thanks, Estee
