Yea! We are back home after our stay at the Children's Hospital of Illinois. I can't remember what I wrote before (it's like a blur) but Molly ended up needing ureter stents put back in yesterday. The initial problem that we got admitted for was the possibility of her having diabetes insipidus which is either a kidney problem or a pituitary problem. If you really want to be freaked out google it and read. I am so glad that wasn't the problem. Molly had a partial blockage of her ureters which was causing back pressure on her kidneys. This back pressure was enough to throw the kidney's for a loop and cause her to excessive drink and urinate. The stents give relief on the pressure and allow the kidneys, which have a little scaring, to heal. We're not sure what step 2 is yet but we will let the doctor's work it out in time. We are so thankful for smart, caring, and compassionate doctors, nurses and staff at the Children's Hospital of Illinois. They helped us through a potentially scary and confusing time. And they always kept our daughter's needs first which is very, very important to Mike and I. We are so glad to be home! The attached picture is just before we went home. We only want to post HAPPY pictures!
