Simeon's surgery is on Tuesday at 8am
(This time it's not a cranial/facial surgery)
This surgery is on his ureters, they are long and coiled and blocked.
The doctor will cut them and re-attach them to his bladder.
He has hydorneurphrosis in his kidneys, (fluid in his kidneys)
the left one being more severe than the right.
It's an easy thing to forget about, he's so happy and seems healthy on the outside
This, is supposed to be a "pretty common" surgery
maybe common to a Pediatric Urologist, but not to us!
He is also being circumcised,
because of all the catheters he needs with all his surgeries
It's just better for less chance of infection and easier access.
He had his pre-op appointment last week and is a hefty
And he is no longer anemic!!
I need to pack and get as much laundry done as I can today
We will be in the hospital til at least Friday
I don't have a way to post updates
til we get home, so please
check the comments, I'll call Christine to let her know!
(I love jammie pictures!)
I'm a nervous wreck, on the verge of tears constantly and sick to my stomach
I know I won't sleep tonite so I'm offering it all up for my sweet Simeon
and their sweet Dominic, who will also be in surgery on Tuesday morning,
to revise his nose for better breathing.
Our God is an awesome God and can heal, guide and comfort these two babies
at the same time!!
Thank you so much for all your love and support!
