I want to respond to all of you, but for now, will just say THANK YOU for all of the advice and support.
It looks as though we will have insurance as of Apr. 1. DH's company pulled some strings and worked hard to help us out.
Gitt and laurajean, you are both on the ball about intactness. It is something that has had me afraid since I first thought of surgery. DH was circ'ed against his parents' expicit wishes, so this really hits home for me. I will, undoubtedly, be speaking, probably at length, about this to my doctors and surgeons. A form is a good idea and would love to see yours if it not too much trouble, Laura. I will require that an external cath be used, if one is required and be explicitly clear about no retraction, not even to have a peek, not even a little tiny bit.
I will be expressing milk starting soon and will head over to the Breastfeeding board to look into the best storage methods.
I'm feeling much better about the vax issues and am now more worried about the other details like circ/retraction, us staying in the ICU with him, potential complications, side effects, pain, etc.
I've had some great PMs from mamas who have been through it. They give me some enlightenment that not all docs are horrible. As soon as I am calm and collected enough, I will write back to them all.
Please, if you are 'that kind of mama,' keep Jett in your prayers or thoughts. It would mean the world to me.
