Praying for a Miracle

Last December we found out that M has a condition known as kidney reflux. We've treated it daily with a small dose of antibiotic to ward off the inevitable UTI.

Tomorrow we're going for a follow up VCUG. I'm so very thankful that our pediatrician has agreed to issue orders for sedation. After M's hospitalization in April 2008, when she was cathed four times in as many days, I just can't allow her to be cathed while she's awake. As far as I know, everything is in place for tomorrow. We're scheduled for an 11:00 a.m. procedure. Last time, I was allowed to be with M throughout the entire procedure. They even let me hold her while they put her to sleep and I was holding her when she woke up. I'm very hopeful that tomorrow will be similar.

I'm praying for a miracle. I'm praying that her kidneys will be functioning perfectly, that the risk of surgery will be forever removed regarding her kidneys. I'm praying that the Great Physician has completely healed my little angel.

I hope so, too!

(being cathed is terrible! I've never had it done, but KayTar did NOT like it AT ALL)

Oh Natalie... I'm so far behind. I'm working my way through my reader list... but now I'm just going to read through whatever else you've posted.

I'm praying all is well with M.
