Audrey did great today, and her surgeon thinks she will have no further problems with her little bottom. In fact, she has already had some...(ahem)...results[:I], all by herself!!
Bless her heart, she had no milk after midnight last night , and nothing at all after 5:00am. Come 9:15am she still was dozing and not really fussing at all!! I was kinda grumpy and I had HAD my breakfast![;)]
TMI alert....Turns out the skin around her little bottom area was just way too tight, but the muscle/sphincter was fine. That's really good because if the muscle is cut too much it can cause incontinence for the rest of a child's life. The doc said her skin just didn't grow as she grew, which explains why it got worse and worse. The last few days she couldn't even pass gas![:(]
She is just taking Tylenol for pain now, and isnt' too fussy-considering. She is still pretty uncomfortable and we may be in for a long night, but hopefully she will be feeling just fine within the next day or two.
Thanks again for all the prayers and positive thoughts. You gals are great!
