and sure enough Mallory has the issue that the pediatrician referred us there for. Poor girl has to have surgery to have what is called a urachal sinus removed. A normal baby has this cord that goes from the bladder to the umbilical cord and drains waste from the baby while in the belly. In some babies it doesn't close or doesn't close all the way. Hers didn't close all the way. So she has to be on antibiotics for 10 days and then we wait for all the inflammation to go down. She is scheduled for surgery on March 5th.

I am feeling pretty level headed at this moment about it. I pretty much knew she had this when everything was being crossed off the list as possible diagnoses. I am just nervous now and anxious about my not even two month old having surgery and about it getting worse in the meantime. This parenting stuff isn't easy...

Oh no! I am glad you were paying attention so they could catch it before it really got infected. That article you posted was really scary! I hope she does well through surgery. I know it's scary to let them take your baby. Let us know how it goes. ((hugs))

Will be thinking of all three of you, it really can't be an easy time. Hope that the antibiotics kick in quickly so her surgery can be schedule and Mallory on the road to recovery.

You know where to come if you need a rant...and we'll want updates as well!
