NO Surgery, as of right now!

I am in Miami right now and have had a very long day at the hospital with the ultrasound and the consultation with the dr. We got pretty good news, the dr does not believe the Kylie needs surgery right now. Her bladder is still very full, but she still has enough amniotic fluid to develop her lungs. She has a lot of hydronephrosis (swelling) on her right kidney but the left one looks fine! He thinks that she has a partial urinary blockage that is not allowing her to completely empty her bladder, but since he could see it contracting, he does think that she is emptying it a little, which is allowing her to have some of her amniotic fluid. We are not out of the woods yet, he said that there is something wrong here, but he thinks it would be better to have weekly ultrasounds with him than to jump in and do surgery. I am so relieved to not have to go through the surgery right now. It might be something that I have to do in the future, but I can try to relax now.
The ultrasound tech also does not think her heart is as bad as we had once thought. The left side is definetly smaller, but she would not classify it as being "hypoplastic" yet. She talked to the Dr and wants an echo done with him during my next visit. So overall it was a good visit and I hope that we get better news with each appt!
