Hooray! What a relief!!

Lucas had his consult with the surgeon today for his hernia. The diagnosis was... NOT A HERNIA!!! Yahoo

He has a hydrocele, which is a sac of fluid surrounding his testicles. The surgeon said they usually resolve themselves within a year, and don't require medical intervention. He goes back in 11 months for a follow up to make sure it did indeed resolve itself. No surgery!!!!

And my little chunker weighed in at 11 lbs 13 oz at 8 weeks old. He's got his 2 month checkup next Friday so it will be interesting to see how much he weighs by then.

I am SO relieved! Finally, something went in our favor with this little guy.

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been wondering how you guys were doing with that situation!

I have a friend who's son has the same thing. They get to check him out next month to see if it resolved itself. I hope Lucas's resolves itself! I'm so happy for you!
