Three weeks of waiting.

Well, this post is going to talk about my child's nether regions. You are warned. :)

Tuesday night, I was drying Brady off after his bath and noticed something wasn't right. It's hard to examine a baby boy's parts while he is wigging and squirming but I finally got a good look and found a lump underneath the skin. Of course, I freaked and called Blake in to consult since he has a penis. We were both stumped and I found myself on google.

Lesson learned. Don't google anything regarding your child's private parts. You won't find what you are looking for.  You will find lots of gross and disturbing things.

We made an appt to see his Dr. and she was pretty much clueless. She said that it was cyst-like and it was under the skin and not attached to the part itself so I'm not quite sure if that is good. We were referred to a Pediatric Urologist and we go in three freaking weeks.

Ugh. Three long weeks to wonder what is going on with my baby. Three long weeks for me to over analyze everything and to freak myself out.

So, until then we wait. We make sure he wets diapers and it doesn't bother him.

I worry about the possibility of surgery and whether or not this is going to affect his chances of having children himself one day. There is a lot for a mom to worry when there is somthing unknown about your child's health.

This is the part about being a mom that sucks.

That wait is going to kill, but try to think positive. It could be nothing. Brady's nether regions are in my T&P. ;)

Ugh....I hate this for you Amy. The only thing I can think of is they aren't THAT worried about it if they are waiting 3 weeks to see him..right??
Its a constant worry when you have children and you are a GREAT mom for even noticing that lump :) That is a sign of a good mom for sure.....
Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and I agree this year should be fun fun !!!

I'm sorry you have to wait so long. I just made a dermatologist appointment...for February 15th. What?!

But it isn't an emergency. Something like this, I'd want to get in sooner just so I could stop worrying! I'll be thinking about you and hoping for the best. Hooray for you that you noticed it!
