Wish us luck. DS2 is having his ultrasound. Hopefully it's nithing. If the find it is what they originally thought, he will have surgery tomorrow night or Saturday morning. Scary thought.

I will have definitive answers in the morning but it looks like a severe hernia caused be immature muscle growth. :( His stomach muscles are not growing with the rest of him, so there is a hole in the middle of his stomach allowing his bowel to protrude.

Thanks! Hopefully tomorrow will determine how soon we will be talking about fixing the issue (depending on which it is!)

:( It's no fun but you have to tell yourself that it is for his comfort and health. It's nerve wracking thinking that your baby needs surgery but he will be better after it.
