Colton had hernia surgery in January. Looking back now, it was a piece of cake, but I was scared to death. We had it done in Tampa. He had it when he was born and we had assumed it went away on it's own until one night I was pulling him out of the bathtub (as he threw a gigantic temper tantrum) and he got this huge bubble in that area. My husband knew exactly what it was and manually "popped" it back in. Two days later he went in for surgery and less than two hours after the 30 minute surgery, we practically had to hold him down so he wouldn't jump on the bed. He felt completely fine.
I will keep Jeffrey in my prayers, but I bet you'll need them more. Handing your baby over to someone for surgery is the worst feeling, no matter how minor the surgery. I know he'll do just fine. Let us know how it goes.
Shonie, when would you be able to make it over for lunch? Is Tampa too far for you if we did it on a Sunday afternoon?
Gloria, have fun with your dad. We'll reschedule soon.
