The doctor says things look good!

This is an old picture, but I love it, so I just had to throw it in ;)

Last week we went to the Children's Rehabilitative Services (CRS) clinic and saw Dr. Zuniga, Madi's urologist.  They took an ultrasound of her kidneys and bladder (and I almost got in a fight with a nurse... long story, but let's just say, you don't mess with my child ;)) and things are still looking good.  Though she does not function perfectly in those areas, there is not too much pressure and we do not need to start catheterizing her, which was awesome news!  My prayer is, and always has been, that her bladder work well enough to not have to cath her.  We go back for another ultrasound in 3 months.  

Today we went to her normal pediatrician, Dr. Nemivant at Pediatrix.  Madi's weight is in the 5th percentile, her height in the 50th, and her head in the 55th.  Because of her hydrocephauls, her head has always been a bit larger, though it's not noticeable.  He was not worried about her weight, either, which has always been in the lower percentile.  I asked him to swab her diaper rash and see exactly what it is so that we can wipe it out.  We're waiting for the results back but he prescribed an antibiotic that is supposed to help in the meantime.  We have yet to Vaccinate Madi and I'm not sure if we ever will, or what we will vaccinate for, so our check was fairly quick.  He said Madi is looking great, though we already knew that ;)!

I am so glad to hear she is doing well, and that she will not have to be catheterized! I love that pic, the expression on her face is priceless!
