Also, Addy has been having quite a few doctors appointments lately. Of course, I think my last post was when she was sick with a UTI and had to be hospitalized. She was 2 months old then, and it was very ... scary to say the least. I blamed my self in many ways, even though the doctor told me that it was nothing that we were doing, and that she was just prone to it at that time. Well, at her 4 month check up... she had ANOTHER one!! (As you can imagine.. I was not a very happy camper!) So they changed her antibiotics and we went on our merry way. At her 6 month check up, they checked her urine and it was clear however, the doctor wanted us to see a Urologist in Memphis. We proceeded to do so and on the 30th ( this past Tues. ) we had major testing done. She had to be put to sleep, and they inserted a tiny camera in her bladder and performed an exploratory procedure, and they also inserted dye to see if it would go anywhere and where it would go. RESULTS... She has Stage 1 Kidney Reflux. It's good and bad news. They rate it on a scale of 1-5, 5 being the worst. So good news, it's the least amount. Bad news... nothing we can do but her grow out of it. She is on a low dose antibiotic for precautions, and we go back when she is a year old to have more testing done, to see if she is growing out of it.
