Why "Prayers for Jillian"?

We sit here at 4:30 in the morning trying to put into words how we feel. We're sleepy, confused, scared, angry, drained, hopeful and trying to understand. 

Tuesday afternoon we had what was supposed to be a routine ultrasound for our baby girl, Jillian. Suffice it to say, it did not go as planned. Jillian has a problem with her heart. We're not exactly sure what that problem is, but if it's what the doc thinks it is (and no, we don't have a clue what he "thinks"), we have a daunting road ahead of us. What we were told was that she, "will probably need major surgery or a heart transplant after birth."

Friday we have a more advanced fetal echocardiogram to take a better look at Jillian's heart. Hopefully then we will get more answers.
