Zoya has been developing this 'thing' on her belly button. Red, swollen, portruding. Remember she had an incision on her belly button from the laparoscopic surgery for the G-tube placement in December, so we knew it was either an infection or a hernia. We have been snowed in and unable to get her to the doctor until today. The pediatrician sent us to the ER thinking it was a strangulated hernia but the surgeon took one look at it and said it was an abscess that just needed to be opened and drained.
So, after a minor operation with sedation, she is now home and sleeping soundly in her little bed. Praise the Lord it was just a little minor thing and she is doing well.
Here is a sweet little picture from the hospital that I wanted to share. Joseph climbed up in her hospital bed and started kissing her little hand...spontaneously. How sweet are they!!
Whoever thought adopting older, institutionalized orphaned children would 'ruin our family'....Well, they were sure wrong!! Love these kids!
