Then, exciting things happened. Meanwhile, I waited in the lobby.
Eventually our Ob/Gyn, heretofore named "Dr. C.", brought me into the examination room, and proceeded to sonogram E and Murloc. At this point, Murloc is about the size of a large raspberry. (Mmm, raspberries.) Its heart is beating at a fit-for-a-hummingbird pace of 150 beats per minute. And if Murloc is raspberry size, its heart is no larger than one of said raspberry's aggregated drupelets. Suffice it to say: extremely hard to see. But sure enough, there it was! A rapidly flashing set of heart-shaped pixels, in a vaguely heart-appropriate lo
cation! E tells me I broke out in a huge grin when I saw it.
Now, it gets even more interesting when you blow up that picture, as our Murloc's Murloc-nature becomes even more evident. The large, pupil-less eyes, the protruding tongue, the webbed hands; I think this one's going to be a swimmer!
