Thank you all for your prayers! Ellie was such a trooper yesterday, endured 2 tests with catheters, an ultrasound, 2 more x-rays, 2 doctor's visits, and a visit with orthotics. She charmed everyone!
We had "wierd" news, good news, bad news, iffy news....
First, we learned that she has only 1 kidney! Big News Flash!The good news is....her only kidney looks good.
The bad news is that her bladder is only holding about an ounce of liquid before she urinates. It seemed, too, that she didn't "feel" the cather being inserted, so her sensation is not good.
The iffy news...is that during the summer we will start medication to calm down her bladder so it does not continue to overwork. It is possible after retraining her bladder that she could potty train. Possible.....still gives mes hope. It will be some time before the doctor can help me make that decision.
Again, thank you for your prayers....I felt the sweet peace of Jesus throughout the day.
