Kevin again: It is starting to seem more and more likely that Michelle will be spending quite a significant amount of time in San Diego for the summer. As we will probably be giving birth down south, Michelle will need to move down quite early so there is no risk of going into premature labor in an area that does not have the capabilities to deliver Karsie.
Karsie has a fairly high risk of being born premature for two reasons. First of all, the omphalocele is a risk alone. Many babies with an omphalocele are born premature. Secondly, Michelle has something called a bicornate uterus, which is a heart-shaped uterus. This is not that serious at this point, but one of the symptoms is giving birth prematurely. Therefore, we do not want to take any chances, so Michelle will probably move to San Diego for the summer.
That being said, for various reasons I will most likely not be able to move down as early and will be needing to go back and forth between Bakersfield and San Diego for the majority of the time Michelle will be down. So, I would like to send out a formal friend request to visit Michelle at some point. If you can spare some time during the summer, I'm sure Michelle would appreciate the company. Just something to think about especially if you are in San Diego already.
