We travel nervously into London, not really knowing what’s ahead of us.  The team there are the ultimate professionals.  They barely say anything during the scan, and ask that we grab a seat in one of the “counselling” rooms.  It feels ominous.

We wait.

And wait.

A cardiologist comes in and explains the issues with the heart.  I didn’t fully understand the issues, other than there were serious complications that would need open-heart surgery. Our own hearts seem to stop, as we gasp.

We walk away from GOSH ‘hand in hand’ not saying anything.

We are offered a termination, and are told that c.50% of parents don’t pursue the pregnancy from here.

We just WILL NOT give up if there is a chance.

Decision made, we’re going into this with both feet.
