{we are bagless!!!}

{isaac & dad - the night before surgery}

you guys!!! thank you for the sweet comments!
i am thrilled to announce that isaac has a sleek little tummy today! it is actually really strange looking to me. he has had his colostomy since he was two days old - it is going to take some getting used to, seeing him like this. ahhh. it is seriously more than i can even think about right now - being able to give him baths & not having little puffs under his shirts anymore...crazy.

so far, everything has gone just about as smoothly as could be - contrary to previous hospital stays. we are so grateful. our {& doctors} main concern right now is just keeping infections at bay since there are so many stitches both inside & outside of his tummy. because of this, he will probably be on an iv drip for another day or two before they put him on clears. we will just take it a day at a time.

its actually harder being in the hospital again. each time seems a bit more that way. isaac doesn't quite feel like ours here - having other people coming thru the night to change his diapers & check his vitals & doing blood work all the time. its a frustrating, but necessary part of the stay here. but everyone has been kind, & we were able to see an old nurse friend last night, too :)

i probably wont be posting again until we are home. thank you all again! looking forward to a {somewhat} quiet afternoon of reading & kissing on little man between naps.
