Lucas is doing beautifully! No pain on his end, very minimal bruising in his boy parts. This was a very serious and tough decision to make as a parent. My husband said whatever I decided on, but that in this case, since cancer risks were higher that we should just go ahead and do the surgery. Now he’s “whole” and he has two balls, lol! Apparently his other one was floating right below his bellybutton…it was just stuck, so it needed a little help down. This is fairly common apparently, something about 30% occurrence with only 1% of that bunch that need the surgery to bring it down, the rest of the boys naturally have it come down.
I’ve learned a lot through this experience and I thank heavens for specialists like our pediatric urologist who is a brilliant surgeon and has a wonderful stitching hand, because its a nice clean stitch. Everything should go back to normal in a few days when the skin begins to adjust.
SCIENCE is amazing, our bodies our amazing, babies are amazingly brave and have so much strength. I am happy my munchkin is okay and not in any pain and hasn’t needed any of the pain medications :)
Now to heal and move forward! I am off to trapeze to take some video. Just wanted to give everyone an update.
