The reason why we are just (mostly) doing well is that Thorin is scheduled to have surgery to remove a patent urachus. It is a connection between the bladder and the umbilicus that did not close after birth. It is a really rare occurance (3 in one million babies) but not life threatening and completely fixable. I am really nervous and scared about the surgery, but so thankful it is something we can fix. We discovered it because he has had a blob of flesh sticking out of his belly button that did not respond to usual treatment for that kind of thing. He was also leaking fluid out of the blob (urine).
Everything else is wonderful. Homeschooling and perpetually busy. We are trying to buy a house, doing all the lovely paperwork to qualify, then we have to try and find a house in our price rang, which may prove impossible since we live in California, but we will try anyway!
Missing coming to Mothering and all you lovely ladies, but life is just so full, and my computer so slow, I just don't find the time to sit.
Love to you all, it is nice to hear how everyone is doing.
|Hello, My grandson also has a patent urachus. He is scheduled for surgery on Wednesday of this week. Can you tell me the outcome of your son's surgery? I am very worried about this surgery|
