My friend had a boy in late February that she didn't want circ'd...she finally gave in to her husband's - 'he has to look like me' wish and told me it was going to be done. The last I heard was the morning of the circ and it was to be done...I have been distraught for the little boy and so angry at both of them....anyway - she called a few days ago to get some advice on delaying vaxes...and I really wanted to help her and have been trying to get over the whole incident..so at the end of the conversation she says; "Oh, I didn't tell you. He isn't circumcised." She said her dh went to fetch some clothes for the baby while they were still in the hospital and while he was gone the nurses brought in the circ consent form - which she said was horrifying. She called her dh and told him he needed to come back to be with the baby during the procedure, and she absolutely wouldn't sign the consent until he read it and gave the okay. Before he even got back to the hospital - he called her back and said, "Tell the drs we aren't doing it." And on top of it, when they told the dr they had changed their minds, she said, "there's really no reason to do it at all. that's fine with me." later - a nurse practitioner came in and told them that only about 50% of parents were doing it at all anymore. No one at the hospital batted an eye - and really reinforced for her dh that there is no good reason for this! Guess he met his son and realized he was perfect. I don't even mind that I grieved for this baby for weeks..I'm just so ecstatic this little guy has his foreskin!
