|Ramsey waits for his X-Ray|
I took this photo of Ramsey's scar today to show how well it has healed. You can hardly even see it, so I added the white line to point it out. His stomach bulges a good bit, on this side. I can't explain it well, and I don't want to confuse anyone, but it's basically a result of trying to fit all his organs into a stomach that was once empty. If the bulge remains, they may suggest a "tummy tuck" to correct it, but that would be a long way off. If he would ever re-herniate, they would take care of it when they did that repair.
|Chicks dig my scar!|
We will continue to use the monitor for the next month. We really don't know what caused it to alarm a few weeks ago; sometimes you just can't explain it, but most likely it was the leads.
We are continuing to "seclude" the boys for a little while longer. The doctor believes it is best to keep Ramsey away from children and large groups until warmer weather officially arrives and the chance of respiratory infection decreases. I'm disappointed because we'll most likely miss our families Easter celebrations, but we'll do whatever is needed to keep him healthy and out of the hospital. I look forward to spending more time with family and friends, and especially introducing Ramsey to people he hasn't even met yet; that warm weather won't come soon enough!!
