First Surgery in the Works

On Wednesday, I took Jordan in to the doctor for the 2nd time in two weeks. A couple weeks ago he was throwing up and ended up with a stomach bug. This time, he got a fever on Christmas night and it lasted until Wednesday morning. I took him in to the doctor on Wednesday morning and it ended up that he just had another virus. There was nothing I could do for him other than keep alternating Ibuprofen and Tylenol. Luckily, his fever went away (that day) and stayed away. While there, I asked the nurse practitioner about a bulge in his groin. She said that it looked like a mild hernia. The next day, I took him for an ultrasound at the hospital. He started off being really good for the ultrasound, but then he got really upset and started crying. Overall, he did really well though. 

He does indeed have a hernia. It was hard seeing him so upset for just an ultrasound. I can't imagine how hard it will be for them to take him away from us for surgery. :( We are going through Lurie's Childrens Hospital in Chicago for the surgery. We have a consultation on Monday, the 9th and then we will schedule the surgery. I hope everyone's New Years is off to a better start than ours!

Poor little fella. I hate to hear he has to have surgery :( Hope everything goes just perfectly and he recovers quickly.
