Surgery for my baby...

Hello all! I just got back home in Raleigh (still feels weird calling it home) after being gone for a week and two days. I am SO glad to be back with my hubby. I had a GREAT time with family and friends, but I missed him! It was nice to get away for a while and see some more familiar faces. I left Greenville at 7 this morning because Bryce had a dr appointment with a pediatric urologist at Duke. Our pediatrician thought he had a inguinal hernia (for those medical people). It turns out that it is not a hernia but a hydrocele. For babies, hydroceles will most likely go away on its own within the first two years. However, since it is just now presenting in Bryce then the dr says it will most likely not go away. The urologist says that it could cause him problems if we don't take care of it. So...Bryce will be having surgery to correct it on November 18th. The surgery should only last an hour and Bryce will be able to go home the same day. The surgery itself is very minor. The only thing I worry about a little is the anesthesia. It is a little scary. However, I know God is in control and it will be okay. Thank you for your prayers. Pray for me to be strong as they are taking him back. I don't want him to see me being worried because I know he will be able to tell and get scared. Thanks!!
