Urology evaluation

Yesterday mom and I took Brant to Children's to meet with Urology for an evaluation. Brant is not circumcised yet. They wouldn't do it in the NICU because his other medical issues were more pressing. They also wouldn't do it while he was on oxygen in fear of having to intubate again. When we got referred to Urology and I called to make the appointment I was told that they typically don't do voluntary circumcisions but given his circumstances they would at least do an evaluation and if they decided not to they could refer us elsewhere.

They decided they would go ahead with the surgery and because of his medical history they wanted him to be seen in the Pass Clinic by an anesthesiologist before surgery. The urologist we met with saw how far we had to drive so she got a hold of an anesthesiologist for us who agreed to squeeze us in later the same day. That was really nice of her but made it one unexpectedly LONG day. We had about an 2 hours to kill before we had to be seen in the Pass Clinic and Brant was SO tired. The anesthesiologist went over everything with us and we got the surgery scheduled for July 25. I can't wait to get this done, over with and behind us!
