Psalm 139...

139 Lord, you have psearched me and known me!
You qknow when I sit down and when I rise up;
you rdiscern my thoughts from afar.
You search out my path and my lying down
and are acquainted with all my ways.
Even before a word is on my tongue,
behold, O Lordsyou know it altogether.
You them me in, behind and before,
and ulay your hand upon me.
vSuch knowledge is wtoo wonderful for me;
it is high; I cannot attain it.
xWhere shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where yshall I flee from your presence?
zIf I ascend to heaven, you are there!
aIf I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 even there your hand shall blead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, c“Surely the darkness shall cover me,
and the light about me be night,”
12 deven the darkness is not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light with you.
13 For you eformed my inward parts;
you fknitted me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.1
gWonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
15 hMy frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in ithe depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your jbook were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
17 How precious to me are your kthoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 lIf I would count them, they are more than mthe sand.
I awake, and I am still with you.
19 Oh that you would nslay the wicked, O God!
omen of blood, pdepart from me!
20 They qspeak against you with malicious intent;
your enemies rtake your name in vain.2
21 sDo I not hate those who hate you, O Lord?
And do I not tloathe those who urise up against you?
22 I hate them with complete hatred;
I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart!
vTry me and know my thoughts!3
24 And see if there be any grievous way in me,
and wlead me in xthe way everlasting!4
David's expression and uncensored emotion toward God is such an amazing example of the personal relationship He wants with each one of us.

Somehow I am now stuck using the same font as this psalm I dragged off a website, but it works.  Today we met with the "pros" at UW.  Encouraged by their words, but still left in the dark a little.  Seems there is only so much we can gauge prior to Esther's birth, and much of that  is just guess work.  There really aren't any hard statistics or averages to go off.  When a child has this type of abnormality it generally restricts organs, such as the lungs, from developing properly.  But it really makes no difference as many times a baby with underdeveloped lungs does remarkably well while at other times a baby with nearly fully developed lungs struggles and fails.  
Guess we just have to trust in God, and allow Him to carry us.
