darn it...

This sad little face is killing me. John took him to be circumcised, so he's been slightly miserable the past two days. I just feel so bad that we couldn't have done it sooner. Two pediatricians at the hospital he was born recommended we not have it done. "He's just built a little differently" is what we were told. So what's that supposed to mean? Luckily our pediatrician here had a differing opinion, which was "no, he's perfectly normal...I think those those doctors were just plain lazy!" To give them the benefit of the doubt, here's my personal opinion...Asher was super swollen for about a week after birth, so I've wondered if that might actually have contributed to the difficulty of preforming such a procedure. I don't know, but at least our doctor was able to take care of it (at two months) without us having to take him to a urologist (at 6 months)...which would have been much more complicated...and expensive, I'm sure.

I just want him to heal up soon...this poor little sad face is killing me.

Yeah what is "he's just built a little differently" supposed to mean? Seriously. Poor Asher. Ty wasn't circumcised until about a month after he was born too and it was by his pediatrician rather than a hospital. I feel for what you are going through. Its no fun to see the end result and see what they have to suffer through!

I mean I hate the whole circumcision thing...I have not personally experienced the horrible procedure myself.

I cried so hard when Sam went through this. I think i cried as much as he did.
Hope the smile replaces the sad face soon.

I can empathize with you Nicole. Isaac had to wait to have his done until he was almost a year. Not fun, and like you said a lot more expensive. Hope he's on the mend soon.

I totally symphathize with you...I felt so bad every time I changed Kirk's diaper because I could tell it was so painful! He is so cute and I hope he feels better soon!
