My day at CHOP on November 25, 2013

Well, I had a long day!  Mom and Dad took me to CHOP this morning for an ultrasound of that kidney at 11:00, and then after that we met with the urologist.  When we were done with him I went to Audiology for my yearly mapping.

I don't have great news to tell you today.  My mommom could tell right away I was a little upset when I called her on my way home. 

I am getting ready to deliver a big pile of Christmas stockings to CHOP and here I will be a patient again.  :(   I will have to work fast getting these stockings made and the brownies baked to get more money to by the Woofi's. 

My urologist has a plan.  It goes like this...... He is meeting on December 4th with the other doctors he works with to discuss my case.  I am not sure why that is.  After they talk the next step will be to put a stent inside of me and leave it there for a little bit (maybe a week or two)  After this stretches things around Mommy and Daddy will have to take me back to CHOP in Philly to have surgery.  The kidney stone is 6mm and needs to be surgically removed.  I am really not smiling when I tell you this. 
We also dropped off the stone I passed the other week at the lab today so they can see what it is made of.

Please keep me in your prayers right now!

Love to all!!!

Morgan's antics

Let's play catch up here.

The first semester is over at school.  Morgan did an awesome job along with her teacher cause it takes two to pull off a good semester.

Last week for a couple days Morgan was complaining she didn't feel right.  Then on Monday she had such pain so off to the Dr we went.  The Dr thought she could have appendicitis so he sent her to the ER.  At the ER it was diagnoised that Morgan's kidney stone wasn't behaving anymore.  When Morgan was 16 months old she had a kidney infection.  At that time we found out that she had a kidney stone but it wasn't causing any problems and would be left alone.  She sees a urologist for follow up every two years.  The hospital did an ultrasound and it was found that she had 3 stones.  One of the stones was causing a blockage.  Morgan was sent home with a strainer and later on Monday  night she did end up passing this stone.  We go down to CHOP on November 25th for another ultrasound and visit to the urologist.  The one stone is 4mm and I am not sure what the 2nd stones size is.

This past weekend we visited Gaylord's on the Potomac for a Christmas weekend.  We went thru the ICE tent.  This tent is 9 degrees and you have to wear special coats to go thru it.  It was amazing to see everyting made out of ice.  Even sliding boards.  People come in from China to build this masterpiece every year.  It was totally amazing!

We are getting ready to make our Christmas delivery of stockings to CHOP.  We have to bake some brownies and make some money for this to happen.  We have enough crayons and markers and we also have enough money to buy the stockings.  We are going to be baking up a storm so we can make sure there is a special Woofi puppy for each child.  Wish us luck,  this could be hard this time.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Love Morgan and family.
