Dr. Saenz came by and talked to us about the surgery. Karsie did very well. Her blood gases apparently went up, but that was expected. There was no blood loss.
They put the patch on her and sewed everything back up. They really did not mess with anything so no bowel or liver went in. They opened her up just a bit more cutting down to get a more open opening instead of a narrow opening, but other than that, things were very mundane. She apparently looks like she has a little snow cone on her belly. We will take pictures when we get to see her.
We would like to break all the serious anxiety by bidding adieu to Bob the omphalocele. He is where he belongs now.
