Christopher update

If there is one thing I have learned is that it is not a good thing when the doctor calls right away after a test. And guess who got a call first thing this morning? Christopher's kidneys are getting worse so surgery number seven will happen sooner rather then later. He is now going to bypass Christopher's bladder by pulling one end of the ureters from his kidneys out to his side. We just have to protect his kidneys from any more damage. Later they can re-attach it to his bladder after they fix it.Poor little guy. Hopefully this will stop all of his UTI's and maybe he will grow (I can hope). It should happen fairly soon. I will post another update when I have a surgery date.

What can I say? I wish I was there with you to watch Alex and just for moral support. I will be thinking of you though as you well know and will keep you and your family in my prayers.

I am sorry to hear about the surgery. I know this is not the option you were hoping for. I do hope it will help the little guy and not be too tough to recover from. Please keep us posted if you get the chance. How is the house coming?
