Sure Melis, just pm me or whatever. I don't want to tie up this thread with a non-circing issue!
Lisa, so sorry. I agree with Melissa and I would rule out other reasons this could be happening before operating

I'm hosting my first paleo dinner party tonight ( I'm not paleo the guest of honor is). It's like a million degrees- all I feel like serving is ice cream cones.
I'm sure cavemen would have eaten ice cream if they'd been smart enough to invent it.
Lisa, please do not attempt to retract your son's foreskin. You can do a lot more damage than you think you're fixing, if that makes sense. I forget how old Ben is, but a tight foreskin is generally not a problem before the age of three. If he's beyond that, then you can encourage him to start trying to loosen it in a warm bath but tell him to not do anything that hurts. Also make sure he's using good bathroom hygiene, because sometimes what seems to be a tight foreskin is actually a normal foreskin but the glans is swollen from not being cleaned after every pee. And finally, it may be that someone already tried retracting the foreskin, did some damage, and now there are adhesions; a steroid cream is sometimes helpful in that case but surgery might be needed, but it doesn't have to be a circumcision. The technical term is "phimosis" if you want to do a search.
It takes 12 pounds of grain and 2500 gallons of water to produce ONE POUND of beef.
Livestock generates 65% of all human-related nitrous oxide, which is 296 times more warming to the environment than carbon dioxide; 37% of all human-related methane, which 23 times as warming as CO2; and 64 percent of ammonia, which contributes significantly to acid rain.

Scary day for me. Here is my FB status from earlier:
Nothing like getting a phone call from day camp that your child fell and hit his head and the paramedics are there. I raced to the rec centre. All is well but a big bump on his head. It was scary but everyone was helpful in calming me down. Robbie is playing on the Wii U so all is right with his world.
Robbie is now off to bed but we get to wake him and watch for concussion symptoms.
