I want to share these surgery pictures because I want to help other BPI families prepare and know what to expect. That is what really helped me in the days leading up to surgery. I remember wanting to know especially what he would look like after surgery. Not just to help me emotionally but it also helped me decide what types of clothing would work best over the bandages. I remember also realizing that we were going to have to switch to a bigger car seat (we were still using the carrier type seat) once I saw pictures of other children post op.
