1st Surgery

Wednesday, April 13 Blake had his first surgical procedure. Today he went in to have the posterior urethral valves (that aren't supposed to be there in the first place and are responsible for this whole thing) removed. It was a scope procedure so no external cutting or anything. According to the surgeon everything went as planned and now we wait some more. We will wait two days and then pull the catheter and see if he can control his own urine output. Hopefully that will be the case but we will just have to wait and see. Once we pull the catheter it shouldn't take too long to figure out if he can pee or not. Then it will be on to the next issue... whatever that is! Again, thanks to all of you for your prayers and thoughts.

Tomorrow, Jenna and Brody get to meet Blake and they are super excited!
