Dr. Kaefer said that it took 4 attempts to make a belly button that everyone in the O.R. could agree on. We haven't seen the finished product but we are excited to take a peek once the bandage comes off.
She is pretty ouchy and not quite herself. She had some pretzels and yogurt and perked up for about 15 minutes. She is due for some more meds pretty soon so hopefully that will help relax her a bit more. Thanks for your prayers.

Friday afternoon Anara will officially have a belly button of her very own. She will no longer point to her g-tube scar and call it a belly button. She is having surgery on Friday to remove several stones that have formed in her reservoir. These stones are very large and Dr. Kaefer will have to make an incision and remove them with his fingers. And, while he is removing stones he is going to go ahead and make her a cosmetic belly button. We will post the "after" pictures once things are healed. We are hoping that Dr. Kaefer's definition of a "short hospital stay" only means one night but we will see.
Pointing to her "button"
More "Bellybutton" Lyrics... You say your bellybutton's missing, there's no reason for alarm It's a common thing for gourds, it won't do you any harm You're technically a fruit and with that much being said; Your umbilical equivocal is up there on your head! You could opt for a prosthetic but of course you'd have to know It'd be covered by your shirt, but not your HMO

-I have not done breakfast or lunch dishes
-The downstairs and upstairs are trashed
-My son screamed all morning
-Two of my children's diapers went unchanged for a lengthy bit of time
Oh well, some things can wait.
