UPDATE: AS OF 2:00 PM CST, COOPER'S BALLS HAVE BEEN LOCATED. THEY WERE FOUND AFTER A WARM BATH, B/C HE POOPED IN HIS BED, IN HIS UPPER REGION OF HIS REGION. I CAN TELL BY THE MASS COMMENTS, ZERO, THAT MANY OF YOU DO NOT READ MY BLOG DAILY OR DO NOT CARE ABOUT MY SON'S MANLINESS AND FOR THAT, "SHAME ON YOU!" FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DO READ AND DID NOT COMMENT, PLEASE GET OFF OF YOUR KNEES NOW GOD ANSWERED OUR PRAYERS. APPARENTLY, COOPER'S BODY TEMPERATURE IS WAY TO LOW, SO "WE HAVE TO KEEP THAT LITTLE BOOGER BUNDLED UP!" SO SAYS HIS DAD.Yes, that type of 'balls.'
Cooper's in fact.
I was on my death bed yesterday and have been resurrected from the dead today. Point being, I haven't changed Cooper's diaper in over a day.
This morning I was changing Cooper's diaper and noticed his little ball sack area looked really wrinkled and prunish, like if your skin is wet for too long. I thought, "His diaper isn't that wet. I wonder why he looks funny?"
So I went about my business... An hour later, I had to change him again, he pooped. I noticed his balls looked the same-gone! I called Matt, "Matt, do a guy's balls disappear?"
"Umm, I can't find Cooper's."
"If his are gone GO TO THE ER!!!" He says very concerned for his son's manliness.
I go and check one more time. Yep, they are gone. I try to warm him up thinking my hands are so cold it is causing 'shrinkage.' Matt had told me there is such a thing and that the Seinfeld episode is correct.
I try to warm him up by blowing on his diaper. It un-wrinkles, but I still can't feel them.
I give him a warm bath. It again, un-wrinkles, but I still can't feel them anywhere!
The dr's office calls back, "What's the problem?"
"Cooper's balls have vanished!" I tell her. I know she's thinking how I'm crazy.
I tell her the mornings happenings and my attempts to locate them.
"Well, lets go ahead and make an appt. for in the morning."
My thoughts.."IN THE MORNING?! WHAT IF THEY ARE GONE FOREVER AND YOU DID NOTHING!" I call Matt and tell him what the nurse said, "So is it not that big of a deal?" He's very concerned as am I.
"I don't know babe. I think she doesn't believe me. I think she thinks I'm crazy. But Matt they seriously are gone."
Cooper's balls are normally very visible. This has never happened. I tried feeling around his groin area and I don't feel anything and he doesn't act like he is in pain. He's so hard to read b/c he's so easy-going.
He's had very runny diapers the past few days and has not really wanted to eat any 'food.' He just wants a bottle and even then he doesn't finish it.
So my fellow mom's... Should I take him to the ER or is this just 'normal?'
