This morning Madi had an ultrasound and VCUG at St. Joseph's Hospital. It mostly went ok, except when the ultrasound tech stopped what she was doing and asked me to explain what is going on with her left kidney. This caught me off guard because, other than the renal reflux on the left-hand side, I didn't know there was anything going on with Madi's left kidney. I think I remember the doctor saying it was slightly smaller, so I'm hoping that's what she means. Unfortunately our appointment with the urologist isn't for 2 weeks, so in the meantime, I'm trying not to stress about it. I did, however, have flashbacks to my 22 week of pregnancy, when the ultrasound tech basically said, congrats, you are having a girl, there are some problems, the doctor is not here but we will call you and let you know what's going on. I'm really praying it's nothing new!
After the testing we went to Hissyfits, a local consignment store we like. Next we went to Phoenix Children's Hospital to pick up some power cords I left last time we were there. We also ate lunch, then we were off to get Madi's new wheelchair. Madi had picked toxic green, of course, because every little 4-year-old princess needs a toxic green chair (or at least in Madi's mind :)). She was SO excited and kept asking all morning when she could go get her "tocic geen" chair. When she saw it she said, "It's just what I always wanted!". It fits her great and there are many things I like much better than her last chair, like the cushon and the tilted wheels. Here's a video of her showing off...
(P.S. I asked her to do a spin and she said, "No! I don't want to show you a spin". Later she says, "perfect", just in case you are wondering :))
Ramya will still fit in Madi's pink chair, so she will use that for long distances. I'm taking both girls to Michaels to pick out some new decorations to customize their chairs with. They are both excited!
That's it for now! Next week is Ramya's surgery, so please continue to keep her in your prayers.
