Prayers For Rocco...

About two weeks ago Rocco and I were playing.  He was laying on my lap with his head at my knees.  He was giggling a lot and I saw something I had never seen before.  On the roof of his mouth there was something new... a ridge protruding out almost in the shape of a line.  As a mother, I STUDY my babies. I know EVERY part of them.  This is certainly something I have never seen before.  When he was a newborn C and I distinctly remember looking inside both of Maximus's and Rocco's mouth prior to checking Maximus out of the NICU because of the odd colors inside.  They looked exactly the same.  The nurse even looked and they were PERFECT.  My guess is it formed in the last few months because at all of the previous doctor visits Dr. F would check their mouths.

The following day I took him to the doctor (a new one because mine moved).  She looked at it and said it was probably just cartilage because when the roof of the mouth form, two sides come together and it probably just a little extra bone (Hmmmm.... sounds familiar like my UTERINE SEPTUM!).  A few days later the boys had their nine month check-up.  I decided to visit another doctor in the practice for a second opinion.  Dr. B (whom I now LOVE!) said she had never seen anything like it before and to play it safe we should see a specialist.

Monday we went and saw Dr. C.  He agreed that it is probably nothing, but in his 30+ years he seen two horrific cases (which I don't even like to repeat!).  There was brain coming down and protruding on the roof of the mouth.  THIS IS NOT EVEN POSSIBLE (I pray!)  Rocco is PERFECTLY healthy and happy.  He is so intelligent and is either right on track developmentally or even AHEAD!  Regardless, Dr. C wants him to have an MRI to be safe.  I'm devastated.

My poor lil baby has to be put under with anesthesia in order to do the MRI.  He is only nine months old and too lil for this!  I'm so sad, but need to be strong for him.  I just know he must be okay.  We have been saying many prayers, but can use more.  If any of you are prayers, please lift my lil guy up in prayer!

It should be scheduled pretty soon here.  I will keep you all posted...
