A Scary Scary Day

Dear Munchkin,

Today has been a very scary day for your Dad and I.  Today I went for our followup ultrasound since you wouldn't cooperate and show the technician your heart at the last ultrasound.

Today we found out that you have a little problem with your heart.  We are so scared for you.  You seem to have a congenital heart defect called the transposition of the great vessels.

It looks like you're going to have an operation soon after you're born and we really don't want you to have to go through it.  But it has to be done if we want to keep you with us.

We don't know all the details yet, but we will next week.  I hope that it won't be too hard on you.  And we will be with you every step of the way.
