Just thought I'd share some shots of what Hope's hernia looked like before surgery. The surgeon said it was the worst he's ever seen and that it was very impressive. In these pics the nurse had smeared it with a barrier cream so that the diaper wouldn't irritate it. So glad it's been taken care of. Hope was pretty out of it all day. The nurse was having to give her pretty serious pain relief. Please pray that she will feel better quickly.
