Kidney Test Results

We trekked up to Little Rock Friday for Luke's annual kidney check-up. We went to the Zoo first and Luke had a great time. At his appointment he had to have a test with a catheter; it did not go so well. They used a catheter that was too big and ended up having to go down a size. For the next 4 days every time Luke needed to potty he would scream and cry like he was dying. It was pretty well awful. We generally got a good report. He does still have some kidney reflux, so he will be taking his antibiotics daily for the next 2 years at least, but it is much improved. He also doesn't have to go back to the doctor for 2 years, so maybe by the time we go again, he won't remember what they did to him. If you are curious as to what kidney reflux is you can check out this link Here are some pictures of Luke at the mall and Zoo.

What a rough experience! But I am so glad the reflux is much improved, and that Luke gets a two-year break.

All my best to Luke, and to you.
