Hypospadia, for those of you who don't know, is a rare birth defect that causes the opening of the urethra to be in the wrong place. In really bad cases the opening is at the bottom of the penis or on the scrotum. It also causes other problems with the penis.

We took our little Car 2 to the urologist this last week. We found out that he does have a very mild case of hypospadia. His urethra opening is just a little low and a little bigger than normal not anything too serious. He is having surgery on November 1st to correct the hypospadia and get a circumcision. The doctor told us the surgery will last about 2 hours. In preparation for the surgery Car 2 has to get 2 testosterone injections.

I am worried about my little Car 2. I know that the surgery will be a good thing for him to have. They say he will be 100% normal after the surgery if everything goes as planned. I just remember how small he was when he was born and I still kind of think of him as tiny even though is catching up. So please keep him and our family in your prayers.

Howdy Y'all

Well it has been awhile since I have had anything I felt was blog worthy. I did however get my hair dyed brown and red. I will really have to take a picture of it to do it real justice but anyway. I was a model for a hair workshop for my friend and hair girl Julie. She works at a salon and they had a really gay guy come from California to teach them new coloring techniques. Julie asked if I would be her model because I needed to get my hair colored and because it was free I agreed. Now my hair is a crazy red on top and brown on the bottom. I like it and so does my husband so I guess that is all that matters. We are going out of town today to take little Car 2 to the urologist. We are hoping for good news that his hypospadia will be easily fixed or that it is not hypospadia at all. Anyway when we return I will let y'all know.

Physical Therapy

I hate physical therapy. I hurt my knee a few months ago and I finally went to the doctor. She told me I have a torn some cartillage and that if I go to physical therapy I may be able to get by without surgery. So not wanting to have surgery I agreed to therapy. Well it is not really that bad until the day after I have been and then my knee hurts worse than when I went in. I load up on aleve and my knee starts feeling better then it is time for my next appointment. I just hope that after 6 more weeks the doctor will tell me I don't need surgery.
