My little guy has to have surgery in a few weeks. He was born with a pretty large skin tag on his lower back. It's about an inch long and isn't connected by a lot of tissue. We had our appt this morning with the pediatric surgeon and next we have to have an ultrasound done of it. Because of where it's located, right over the spine, they need to check to make sure it's not a form of spina bifida. Let's just pray it's not. The Dr said she's done a few of these before and they were all normal, but just to be on the safe side they have to check that out. So, Monday we have the appt for the ultrasound and then the surgery is scheduled for Mon, Jan.26. I was sitting there in the exam room fighting back tears because I work in surgery and I hate the thought of my little guy being put to sleep and cut on. It won't be a big incision at all and the surgery won't take long, but it's still the fact that he's my little baby. Well, not so little anymore, he weighed in at 9lbs 6oz this morning so he's becoming quite the little porker. :) Anyways, please pray with us that the ultrasound will be completly normal and all he needs is the surgery. And to top it off, tomorrow morning we get to go to the pediatrician and get all his shots. He's one month old tomorrow. I don't know where the time goes, it's flying by! Everyday I enjoy getting to spend time with him and watching him grow and change everyday. It's amazing!
Here he is finally starting to fill out his clothes!!
