I'm generally an anxious mess when it comes to
So, to fill the time between now and sleep, I'm baking muffins, rocking babies, and typing updates on my blog. :) (You all get to benefit from that last one.)
With out further a-do, here's the update!
Isaac's Kidney Reflux Update (I know, super exciting, right??)
We went in for I's kidney reflux testing about 2 weeks ago. When I talked to the nurse on the phone, she mentioned that we were going to fore go the ultrasound and skip to the more invasive VCUG.

No evidence of previous infection, and they were the same approximate size. yay! He still has the 33% chance that he has kidney reflux. But, since he shows no sign of prior infection, we don't have to do any further testing unless something comes up down the road. We do have to be more cautious when it comes to fevers. Any fever with out an apparent cause warrants an immediate urine culture. But, we are pretty sensitive to that kind of stuff from O anyway, so it shouldn't be a huge change.
Great news. Its good to get that testing out of the way. To get over that hump of anxiety and get to the other side: relief.
Now, if I could only feel that way about kindergarten starting tomorrow...
