2 steps forward... of course a step back..











Well the Doc called us back up to the room during r lunch and informed us that they were going to have to open up her belly cut to relieve the pressure. He had thought at first that it would all fit and would be fine but after a hr it was swelled up pretty good and he was afraid it would start cutting off her blood flow. So they will just open back up the cut and let some of her innerds come out to relax the pressure. They will cover it up with a plastic wrap and in a few days slowing start getting everything back in.. Not a big deal... I know I'm saying having your guts out is no big deal right!! So hopefully we will get back in to see her in a half hr or so and see what has happened now!! But really no worries.. she's my tuff little girl... here are some before and after.. and later I will have some after after pics!! Mikey

  1. Her little body just wouldn't stretch to hold all her organs that grew up in the wrong place....praying this will give Ireland's body a chance to catch up from surgery, no big deal. Ireland is one tough little girl and this will be one of the hurdles she jumps!!

    Fight Ireland fight, Tracy
