Another Appointment

Carter had another appointment today. This time it was with Urology. I thought that it was going to be really hard getting him in and out of the hospital with oxygen and monitor in tow, but with the stroller it ended up being pretty simple. It just took me a long time to get everything loaded and unloaded. The appointment went well. The doctor said that Carter's urine refluxes from his bladder back up into his kidneys. We already knew that, but he was just confirming the diagnosis. He thinks that Carter will probably outgrow it by the age of 3, but if he doesn't then he'll have to have a surgery to fix it. Until then he has to stay on a low dose of antibiotics to prevent a urinary tract infection. The doc also said that his kidneys, although fused together, look perfectly healthy and he has no reason to believe that they won't stay that way. We go back in six months to get an ultrasound to see if he still has the reflux. Yay! The next appointment is on Friday when we see an Opthalmologist and his regular pediatrician.

Carter's still enthusiastic about the bottle. He took another 30 today!
