Hazel had her surgery on September 30th at Children's in Salt lake. The procedure she had is a reversible one and is designed to relieve the pressure in her bladder that causes her kidney reflux. The surgery will be reversed when she is a little bigger and can then have the valve repair she needs. They have quite the procedures there for doing kids' surgeries. You enter at a certain point and go through these different check stations.
I was a miserable failure at keeping Jen company as it was at that point that I realized I was really not feeling well. I got really sick and realized that being away from home in that state is the worst..even in a hospital, there is no comfort in it. I could not believe I was having the flu for the 2nd time in Utah. Bummer! Somehow we got home and I managed to give it to Hazel on the trip home. She surely did not need that the day after surgery~poor baby. Her recovery has gone very well and no more catheterizing for Jen and Lowell anymore~ so hooray for that!
Here are some of the photos I wanted to include to show you the kind of sisterhood I see in their home that warms my heart so much.
