The day Jacob was born his doctor told us that his testicles did not drop, but that it sometimes happen and there was no need to worry.
On his first doctor’s checkup his then pediatrician said the same thing but she did add that if they don’t drop by themselves, well, he is going to need surgery. Way to freak out a mother!
It’s 8 months later and only one has dropped. The other one is, who knows! His new pediatrician couldn’t find it! She referred us to a Pediatric Urology Doctor. Oh yeah, if that sucker doesn’t drop and stay hidden God knows where it can became cancerous. Lets keep freaking out the mother, shall we?
Cancer runs in my family so this has me a bit on edge. No need to stress just yet, I know. I still have to wait a couple of days to call the doctor and make an appointment. Something about waiting for the referral to get to his/her office.
Has anyone been through this? I really don’t want my baby to be put down at such young age! And I already told him that I want grandchildren so that he has to tell that sucker to come out now! Way to pressure an 8 month old boy, huh?!
I know it is all in God’s hands now. Please pray for us.
