Asher's Surgery

Asher had minor surgery this morning to repair his umbilical hernia. I will confess, though, that it did not feel minor to this mommy! The doctor said that the hole in Asher's stomach was 2.5 centimeters wide! Does that sound minor?

We had planned all along for both Danny and me to take Asher to the hospital, but alas the stomach bug hit our house this week, and I had to stay home with some of our other sick children. Danny was a trooper and left the house at 5:30 in the morning all by his lonesome. He even remembered to take the camera. Check out these pictures of our little guy: he is amazing! We are so proud of him!

A little pre-surgery playtime!

Asher doesn't look too sure about this surgery thing...

And he's off!

Check out the yellow socks...they even let Asher bring them home!

Look at that precious baby boy!

Welcome home, Asher! Hope you feel better soon!


  1. Sweet Asher! He is just too cute! So glad everything went well with his surgery. I am with you, if it is your own child, no surgery seems minor! Hope y'all have a very Merry Christmas.

  2. So glad that Asher is home recovering with his family. Those extra hugs & kisses will help! Looks like he was a real trooper.

    Have a Merry Christmas!
