He will be having a right inguinal hernia repair and posible left exploratory. I think we will opt for the left explore due to the fact that his dad, uncle and grampa all had bilateral (both sides) inguinal hernias and this is a hereditary condition. Also, since it is presenting so early (he's 3 months old) it increases his chance of having one on the other side as well.

Poor baby. I think he still has bad dream over all the tests and IV he had so shortly after birth. It'll be OK though, I already have one normal baby with a scar.

My DS had a hernia as an infant. It was awful. I don't remember what they called the hernia, but it had swollen one of his testicles and was a frightening purple blue. We took him to the doc, who sent us to a specialist. The specialist spent some time painfully manipulating and pushing and proding. He managed to correct the hernia with out surgery. It has never come back. I am thankful the DS didn't need surgery.
I am sending happy thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery for your DS.

Sometimes I think it is harder on the mom than the child. I agree with Robin. He will forget soon enough. My prayers are with you, your family & mostly your son. Good Luck

My dog is very worried about anyone (human or furkids) who isn't well. If she were there, she would be kissing him from head to foot--just like all the FV aunties! I'll be thinking good thoughts for you and your little one.
