BUN, fun, fun, fun...

Today we visited our nice Nephrologist in Peoria. He is a young guy who is really nice to talk with and great with kids. We did blood work last week for this visit and the results were great. The blood draw last week not so great. Two pokes for poor Molly. They tested Molly's BUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen) and did a creatinine test (evaluates kidney function) and both came back in normal ranges. The moral is that the stents are doing what they need to do and everything is back on track - for now. In fact Molly's urine is concentrating so well now that there is no need to do any further testing for diabetes insipidus. Thank goodness! All in all it was a good day for good news! We visit our urologist on Monday so we are hopeful for more continued good news. We appreciate all the prayers and good thoughts sent our way during this experience. I have learned a lot from it and will come away being a true advocate for my children.
