Seamus was born with a right club foot - it was/is a shock to us. The good news is that it can be fixed. He is having a small surgical procedure on Friday. He does have to go under anesthesia though. I'm stressing and worried about that. Please keep us in your prayers/thoughts.

Not in your DDC but wanted to send you s. I was born with club feet and I think it was much harder on my mom than on me. It was fixed before I was old enough to remember and I've never had any problems. Hope all goes well:.

We'll keep your family in our prayers. It's always scary having a little one in the hospital.

We are back from the hospital. Emotionally, I'm all over the place. Seamus is now sleeping besides me - the surgery went as expected. We've been warned that he will be extra fussy for the next 24 hours, but so far we haven't seen that.

I had a hard time with both the pre and post op. During pre, it was toture hearing him cry because he was so hungry and not be able to BF. Then during post-op, he had all of these lines hooked up to him. DH asked when I would be able to nurse him and the nurse told us that he had been given sugar water. I flipped out on them. Another nurse had to come in and explain that it was standard procedure because of him going under. We were never told about the sugar water bottle and DH reamed out the doctor. Luckily, DS nursed a little bit while we were waiting to be discharged.

Thank you all so much for thinking of our family.

Hugs to you, Brenna. You're through the worst, I'm sure.

The sugar water thing is really disappointing. They're so un-thinking in hospitals about things like that. If it makes you feel any better, we've had so much trouble with our LO that he's already had simethicone, colic drops, gripe water, and probiotics mixed in breast milk. So much for the virgin gut....

I hope Seamus (love that name, by the way) is doing really well n gets through the next day or two without too much trouble.
