Awwww... kansasgal!!! He is BEAUTIFUL!!! Wow. he def couldn't wait, huh?!?! At your sons basesball game? LOL Never forget that one!!
Poor thing.. I will keep you all in my prayers and I hope his surgery goes well with NO complications and I hope they find the reason behind the excess fluid.
Congrats on your son! He is simply gorgeous!!
Thank you!! I fell in love for the 5th time all over again :) YESS at the baseball game, he couldn't wait any longer. I went to the bathroom about halfway through the game and on the walk back to my chair I felt a big gush, but nothing too major...well a few more big gushes followed and after the game was over on the walk to the car I had to stop b/c this 'gush' was huge....pouring down my leg and onto the ground this time. Of course my oldest son was walking with me and had to loudly announce, "Mom you just peed your pants". Good thing nobody was around LOL.
Surgery went well today, but we didn't get the greatest news. Going in they thought he had a hole in his intestine and they knew something was not right with his bowel. The surgery confirmed that he has a perforated bowel. So he can't poop on his own, which explains the excess fluid etc that was in his belly...also explains why I had too much amniotic fluid. He will have a colostomy bag until roughly 6 months. They cannot say for sure an exact time frame until they see how he does once he starts eating etc. The 2 parts of his bowel that need to be reconnected are too different in size, so they have to give the smaller of the 2 time to grow I guess before they can connect them. I have had so many medical terms and information thrown at me this last day, my head is spinning. I delivered him yesterday morning at 5:23 , and they let me go this afternoon so I could go & be with him. We moved to a new area a little over a year ago and still don't know many people and have zero family here, so we hadn't even made it up to see him until I got released from the hospital today. We still have the 3 other kids and the 2 year old can't go back to see him, so my hubby couldn't go up there by himself :(
I feel like I will wake up and this all be a dream anytime now. I just don't understand this, I have had 3 healthy babies prior to this. They don't have any answers for me yet. I did get carbon monoxide poison while on vacation in March from a hotel we were staying at, so of course that popped into my head right away. I do plan to get some more answers tomorrow as I plan to spend the day up at the hospital with him. I went to see him today and I couldn't stay there b/c I started to get sick and I am still very sore. He was sedated and on a ventilator still from the surgery. He will hopefully get off the ventilator sometime tomorrow. I just feel soooo terrible for a lot of things right now. A. that we have no choice but to do what we are doing. We still have 3 other kiddos and zero help here...so we can't be up at the hospital with him 24/7. B. I hoped & prayed A LOT that I would finally have a baby girl this time and not only did I not get one, but I got a precious baby boy who was meant to join our family and he's sick :( ...just to name a few. Thank goodness my mom will be here next week, so we will have some extra help. I am still in a lot of pain of course, and an emotional wreck right now, it's so hard to try & stay strong for my other kids. All I want to do is cry. There isn't a worse feeling in the world then carrying a baby for 9 months and them NOT coming home with you.
Ok my mind is here & there...sorry for the long winded post....please just keep us in your prayers.
Good luck & LABOR DUST to all of you ladies waiting to deliver :)
