Amniocentesis and a Birthday

Announcement, Scooby Doo errr Mr. Burrito is  celebrating his birthday, yippee!

Time flies, I can't believe it's been six years since our second bundle of joy was born.  We are bringing some snacks  and treats for his classmates tomorrow at his school.  I hope and pray that he won't get sick because Ms. Burrito  is sick.  With the flu that has been going around, I am paranoid and scared about my kids.  I hope that what Ms. Burrito has is just plain cold and nothing  serious.  

I still recall when my test result  came back with some irregularities during the second trimester of my pregnancy.  My OB Gyne  sent me to a specialist in Pittsburgh to find out what's wrong.  The specialist advised us that our baby might have a down syndrome so he suggested for me to undergo an amniocentesis procedure so they could study what is wrong with the baby inside my womb.  The said procedure  could cause  miscarriage,  so we told him right there and then that we did not want it, that no matter  what our son would be, we are willing to face it and would love him the same.  I am so glad that we did not listen because  for six years now, our son  is healthy and smart.  He was born weighing 8 lbs and there was nothing wrong with him.  God is great, He protects those who believes in Him!
