Colostomy of my new born, lets talk..

My baby was admitted last December 18 and had an operation last December 19. The doctors found out that he has an HD. Now, he has a colostomy and anyone can provide tips, ideas, or any thoughts you know with my situation is highly appreciated.

I am so sad, worried, troubled and really do not know what to do.

I have been looking to see if we have a forum may late to Hirschsprungs and colostomy ..I have also out it into the search engine and there is quite a bit of information up there, you may be able to find a support group with others going through the same.I can imagine how you feel I am going to do some research and see what I can find out may help you .

Her baby is still under medication and is estimated to be in the hospital until early next year.

There will be a series of activities in connection with this.Our friends and colleagues are yet to set a venue. There will be concert for a cause, nail art's, tshirt Printing, Bikini Car wash, Henna and a lot more so to prepare for the amount needed for the next operation.

In behalf of Liz..

Today, I went to the office with a much lighter feeling because my Baby Dreih has been doing great with his colostomy. I was able to find ways also to lessen my expenses as ostomy appliance and products in the Philippines is just so expensive and is rare to find.

I realized that in life, no matter how solitary, depressed a person you may seem to be, there are many things that we can be thankful for. Seemingly mundane actions have the potential to make big changes in our future. Thus, we should be keen in recognizing all the things, no matter how small, that we should be grateful for.

I am thankful and grateful for what had happend. It made me a better mother to my children.

Time passed by so fast. This month is suppose to be mybaby dreih's reversal or operation but because we do not have enough budget for teh operation we planned to postponed it. He is doing great and bigger now. He is our handsome angel!

Sounds like he is doing well,  have you any pics up of him?Will hospital  not work out a plan for payment so you can have the operation done, have you tried getting help ?  
1943525 tn?1356502781
Hi.. been a long time.. Yes I do have pictures of him.. when Ihave time I will post some in here..

We don;t have payment plans in the Philippines and I have nmot tried getting help as I donu where and whom..

I miss this site..

I am glad to hear he is doing well, its a shame there is no healthcare plan where you live ..in the US folks can get help from free clinics and also if they go to the ER its a shame the same doesnt happen in the Phillipines ...a Pic of him on your site would be nice .
