So little Roan hasn't been spared a break in his first few months of life!

This Thursday, October 6th, Roan is schedule for surgery at 9:45 to treat his inguinal hernia. He also has an umbilical hernia, but they want to see if that one corrects itself over the first year.

Otherwise, the boy is healthy. He's 6lbs 8oz, and closing in on 20" long. It's hard to believe my little man was so little! We hope that he'll be tested on room air again this week. The darn cannula barely stays in his nose anymore, he's always ripping it off his head in the middle of the night.

Our little ones are growing, growing, growing!

UPDATE
So our little Rock-star is a little worse than originally imagined.

The 6th turned out to be a consultation, and a physical for the surgeon to look over his hernia. In examining him, however, she found that he actually had another inguinal hernia on the other side! So now the surgery has gone from correcting one inguinal hernia to correcting bilateral hernias. Our poor little man! No wonder he's so fussy!

The surgery is schedule for the 12th at 7:30am. He will have to stay in the hospital over-night (I had feared as much! ) but they don't anticipate any complications. I even get to be in the room with him while they put him under!

Thank you all for your kind support! Now we're just waiting anxiously, and nervously for the 12th to roll around.. We plan to stay in town that evening so we can be closer to him. Here's to everything going well!

I will be thinking about sweet Roan on Wed. He sure is our rockstar, isn't he? Davis has an umbilical hernia, too. We are hoping it corrects itself as well.

He will do wonderful, mama..He hasn't let anything else get in his way! I'm glad he's growing well. Hopefully he can get on room air soon and not have to have that thing in his nose..has to be uncomfortable. KUP!
