My poor baby boy :(


I wanted to let everyone know that Grady is doing great. Well, as great as you can expect. He's definitely a strong lil' trooper. We went into the hospital on Friday at 6am and was out by 1pm. The surgery itself lasted 2 1/2 hours. It was the longest 2 hours of my life.
Our pediatric urologist Dr. Baseman said everything went well. The surgery was more intensive then he first expected. I don't want to get too graphic but he didn't have enough skin to block his original opening so they had to transfer skin from the other side of his manhood. Grady's had a catheter in since Friday and we're going in tomorrow to get it removed. We've had to double diaper him, which isn't the easiest thing to do with a wiggling 7 month old. You practically have to pin him down so he doesn't pull out his catheter. Hopefully he'll tell us he's healing up great.

Thanks for every one's prayers. We truly appreciate it!!

Aww Poor Grady! I'm so sorry he had to go through that. I'm glad he is doing ok, poor thing. Give him lots of hugs and kisses from us.
