I know, this is a terrible picture. She's not angry, the flash caught her in the face and she was too busy with Important Things to consent to a second--I'd interrupted her fun long enough. I did get her permission to post this picture online.
The incision is pretty much healed and her activity level is back to normal--she's running around and playing, riding her bike--although she will from time to time ask to be carried up the stairs because "you know the doctor said I should take it easy on the stairs!". We have one more appointment in a couple of weeks before we get the okay for public pools--the doctor wants to be sure she's absolutely healed and in no danger of infection. Both girls are impatiently waiting for the all clear even though the pools around here haven't even opened just yet.
If anyone happens to run across this blog because of doing a search on omphaloceles, please feel free to leave a comment or ask any questions--I'll do my best to answer them. When Ivy was first diagnosed, most of the information we found online seemed pretty grim, it would have been nice to read a story about a baby that went on to have very few health problems. I don't mind sharing any of our experiences with parents who are going through the same thing.
