Caleb's Surgery Update

Caleb's surgery went well yesterday. They repaired his Hypospadias and rebuilt the opening for the uretha. We were also able to have an injection done that we are hoping will stop the kidney reflux. We wont know for a few months if that is successful or not so we stay on the antibiotics until we can retest him. His testicles seemed ok once they had him completely under sedation. So all and all it seems we accomplished a lot. And the reflux we were expecting to deal with next year but it seemed to make sense to try this. We were able to come home with no problems. He slept a lot yesterday and was pretty much back to normal this morning. Around 11:30 he was saying he hurt and when I went to change his diaper his stint in his penis had pulled out some so I called the Dr. He said to come to the hospital and he would readjust it for us. By the time we got there the stint had come out completely and so the Dr just removed the stitch holding it in place and we are going to watch everything. It is too risky with the swelling to put the stint back in place. We will follow up with the Dr again next week.

Thank you to everyone that was sending thoughts and prayers our way!!

So glad to hear that things are going well. Sorry I missed his birthday! I was in Denver at the time and I had no idea that there was something so special going on! Hope things continue to get better and better for everyone.
