How many kidney stones can a 7 year old make?

Saturday the 21st we met Morgan's new surgeon. He actually works on Saturdays at CHOP. Needless to say Morgan was very upset before, during and after the appt. We will be looking at 2 scenarios. Best case scenario is when they start surgery they see the camera and tools fit in her little body parts and they have no trouble getting either a 6mm lone stone or they find a cyst filled with lots of small stones. They could do another cat scan now to see if its a cyst or one stone but we opted not to put her thru under test when surgery has to be performed regardless.  If its a cyst they will also burn it so that it only has a 2% chance of coming back.

Next scenario would be the issue of the camera not fitting and a stent would need to be put in and surgery would happen at a later date. This way she would most likely need 3 surgeries and we all know Morgan has been thru this too much already.

On a brighter note Christmas vacation has been wonderful. Today we are going to Disney on Ice.

Love to all!
