Update from the Hospital

So yesterday was the day I went to Doerbecher to have the VCUG done to check on the reflux issue I was having that caused my infection in the first place. The procedure didn't take that long and they basically filled me up 3 times with liquid while taking X-Rays to look for the reflux. Mommy and daddy were there and mommy held my hand through the whole thing. It didn't really bother me and I didn't cry at all. I don't like being poked so I made sure to pee on the guy poking me, but other than that the procedure went fine.

We didn't think we were going to find anything out until we meet with my doctor Friday, but the radiology doctor who performed the test said there was no reflux whatsoever!!! This should mean (knock on wood) a clean bill of health provided the other tests we are having done (for the metabolic disorder) continue to come back negative. We should know more tomorrow as we have a mother-baby appointment with our pediatrician and the final results of the VCUG should be given to us.

So, keep your fingers crossed that it is all over and I am just a normal, healthy 3-week old baby!

Oh, one more thing...mommy took me to a nurse today as part of another appointment (no worries, just a follow-up) and I got weighed. I am now up to 7.5 pounds (7 pounds, 8 ounces)! I am up over a pound from my birth weight and they were happy to see that!

Many thanks again for all the prayers and well wishes!

Hey Maddie Darling Girl,

A whole pound up. I'm so proud of you! Mommy must be making powerful milk!
You have no idea how hard Grammy is hoping that all the tests come back negative and we can just move on to Maddie-Grammy play time.
I'm coming to see you this afternoon on my way to O'Pa and O'Ma's house. One day soon, we'll take you up there to see the old homestead......

Hugs and kisses,
