Nephrology

So I’ve been a bit neglectful of this blog…I have the best intentions, but then life seems to get in the way.  (Or is it my kindle?)

Today I took J to see the nephrologist.  For those of you who have forgotten or never have needed to know what a nephrologist is: it’s a kidney doc.  J was overdue for a follow-up appointment.  I was hoping today would be the last one.   No such luck, however, I was reminded again of how much I really like this doctor.  I still struggle with the medical system in Bama, especially given our rough beginning, but this doctor is great and his office is really good to work with.  It’s refreshing.  With that being said, I’m very glad I don’t have to work with them often!

Overall J is doing great.  He’s in the 90th percentile for height.  (Yes, I need to point out I managed to have tall babies and toddlers.  Given my ‘height impairment’, I’m quite proud of this.)  J is in the 50th percentile for weight, has the right size noggin, etc.  His kidneys look good too.  There is still a slight blockage in one of them, but the doctor isn’t concerned.  We’ll do a follow-up in a year, but the doctor says the risk of J having future problems with his kidneys is really small.  Yay!!  So although I’d have preferred to be done with this piece of his medical life, the news is still great.

Other than that, we’re reasonably healthy at the moment.  The school year is almost done and it’s hard to believe summer is right around the corner!  Maybe I’ll be more prolific with my posts then!

    I am so glad to hear that he is doing well! Oddly enough I was going to ask you how all was going, I was driving this morning and my mind just came to you and him and all that you guys have overcome. You are truly blessed with such beautiful children. 🙂
