|Getting ready for our day!|
I mentioned yesterday that Eli had his follow-up tests at the hospital for hydronephrosis. He had an ultrasound and follow-up visits with his two specialists.
Grammy (Daniel's mom) came and spent the day with the big kids so it could be just a baby-and-me day at the hospital.

|Here is Eli waiting for his ultrasound|
He was calm and docile pretty much all day!
|Waiting to see Dr. D - his urologist|
Look at the eyelashes on this boy! He is one cute little guy.
|I came prepared!|
These are SO good!!
I don't know why they even bother to make regular snickers bars anymore
|Eli was making faces and babbling in the waiting area :)|
|He made a face just as I was taking this photo |
he loved laying on these tables!
|At the nephrologist's office waiting to get blood drawn|
|After he got blood drawn I nursed him and he fell asleep|
now we wait for him to give us a urine specimen
|At 3pm we were finally done and ready to go home!|
|At home, taking an after-dinner bath|
The results of his ultrasound showed that his kidneys are both growing. His effected kidney has grown less than his normal kidney but it's still growing so that is positive. I was hoping they would tell me that Eli is starting to grow out of this but so far he still has stage 3 hydronephrosis and megaurater on the left side. We're waiting to hear the results of the blood work - that will probably come next week sometime - which will show if his kidneys are still functioning properly. Last time those test results were positive so I'm not worried about that. He'll go back every six months to have his kidneys scanned and go back every twelve months for blood work to test kidney function.
