Ella News

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to let you all know that we are having to do some tests on Ella’s kidneys. As most of you know, when I was pregnant we found out that one of her kidney's was enlarged. Last week, she had a diaper “blow-out” at school. It was pee and not poop, then her teacher mentioned that she has at least one wet diaper an hour, so we decided to call the doctor. Randy took her in on Tuesday for a urinalysis and blood work. All of that came back clear (no infection present). Wednesday, she had an ultrasound and we found out yesterday that both of her kidney’s are slightly enlarged. Her doctor recommended that we do another test. This time it’s a dye test, a bit more invasive, but will give us a better idea of what’s going on and how to further treat her. The test is scheduled for Tuesday morning at 8:00 AM at Children's Imaging Center. Unfortunately, her doctor had left for the day yesterday and is on vacation for the next week, so all of our questions will have to wait until then!

Please feel free to call either of us if you have any questions or just want to talk. Say some extra prayers for our baby girl
