We had our surgical consult this morning. Pre-op will be Monday and surgery will be Wednesday the 26th, which is also Seth’s tenth birthday. Our choices were that day or to wait three more weeks. It will be done out-patient though, so we will be home to celebrate with the double-digit midget in the evening. Yes, I realize that midget is very un-pc. Once again, he’s my son and I can compare him to those cute little tootsie rolls if I want to.
The surgeon freaked me out a little. He kept pushing around all over her belly and he said that he could feel a mass in there. I may sound gross, but I’m praying it’s just poo. You are welcome to pray this with me.
On a side note, Ana Sofia responded to me in English twice in the past two days. Yesterday I walked in the family room and asked, “Whatcha doing?” To which she clearly replied, “Playing Barbies.” I almost fainted.
Then today, while I was brushing her hair, she pulled her head away from me and screamed, “Mama, Leave it alone!”
She is also counting to ten and can identify the numbers when she sees them and she is trying to learn the alphabet song.
I know this isn’t really an inspiring or encouraging post, but I wanted to let everyone know what is going on with her belly so you can keep her in your prayers. And I hope that you future adoptive Moms reading this will find some hope in just how fast my little Mowgli is learning.
