Christian's urology appointment

Christian got to go with Daddy to have an ultrasound and see Dr Cooper (urology) yesterday at UIHC. Charlie got the honors of taking him. He chose driving all day instead of taking kids to and from school, etc.

Everything went great! Christian did really well and had a couple little naps throughout the day in his stroller.

Christian weighs 17 lbs 15 oz and is 25 inches. Everything looked good on the ultrasound. The bladder and kidneys look great. The bladder wall has had no change but hasn't thickened any more. We will continue with the small dose of ditropan to help the bladder. We also are continuing with the miralax. Christian still has what the doctors call a hydrocele (hydro seal). We are just watching to see if it will correct itself. If after he is one year old and it is not gone, then we will opt for surgery. The general surgeon here in Des Moines wanted to do surgery a few months ago and had called it a hernia but our urologist has told us to wait and see. The urologist doesn't call it a hernia. Here is a link for what hydrocele is: https://www.google.com/health/ref/Hydrocele

The doctor said to keep doing what we are doing and go back in 4 months. The doctor doesn't have an appointment for 6 months so it will be more like six months which is fine with us. If we have any problems we will call. :)

I hope we get as good as news when we go to see ortho on the 30th.

that's all for now...
