We're all pretty miserable in our house right now. The fever and cough started with Elijah and soon spread to Ethan and I. Yesterday we found out Ethan has an ear infection as well. So he's pretty miserable!

The reason we took Ethan to the doctor yesterday was to get his belly button checked. It's been red and leaky ever since his cord fell off after he was born over a year ago!

We really like our new doctor and she took our concerns seriously. "Congratulations" she said as she came back in the room. "You made me get out my medical textbook." She showed us that she's thinking it's an "umbilical pryor". Because of his age and the fact that it's been "weepy" this whole time she's recommended we take Ethan to Columbia to get a specialist to look at it and see what needs to be done.

Thanks for your prayers and interest in our family. We appriciate you so much!

Oh, I hate that you all are sick. I'll be praying and especially for little "E"'s appointment with the specialist.

Love and prayers! =)ik

Oh my goodness Liss! I can't believe you have to see a specialist. Is he going to be OK?

I'm sorry you're all sick on top of it, and I can't even do anything to help here!

Mrs.Rabe said...

Andrew has mentioned- I wonder if there is a word that google couldn't find.
Well Melissa you've done it!! I typed in "umbilical pryor" YOUR blog comes up as the 1st result then 2 sites I can't read...one looks like spanish. It's rare to ever see 'did not match any documents' but under images that's what it said!
Unfortunitly that leaves us w/more questions? I must say in the hundreds of babies i've seen I've never heard or seen of it.

Get wells soon OXOX
