I'm a proud lil' bro!

Boy am I proud of my brother, Kayson! Today mommy, pamaw and I went to his end-of-the-year awards ceremony. He received an award for Academic Honors (which equates to ALL A's). He also was the ONLY 2nd grader to get both the medal for most Accelerated Reader (AR) points and achieving 25 points for AR per nine weeks. Yep that's right the only second grader in BOTH categories! Pretty awesome, right!? I sure hope that he helps me out when I'm bigger and in school. Way to go bro! I love you and I am so proud of you! I hope you saw me clapping my little hands for you today!

Beautiful Day!

Mom and I agree... everyday should be like today! It's just gorgeous! It was in the high 50s this morning and it's supposed to just get into the 80s this afternoon. We had a great lunch of hummus, crackers, apples and grapes. Yummo!

After lunch we checked the mail and played outside for a while. I decided to grab a cactus and I got a little thorn in my hand... but I think mommy got it out, hopefully! Hope you guys are all having a great day like me!

Super great!

Well everything went great last week with my VCUG. I didn't have to get an IV after all. Mom was confusing my VCUG with a renal scan! It was a pleasant surprise though because the VCUG is a much faster test, yay! The stinky part was that I had to have a catheter put into my boy part... ouch! They put some numbing cream on it first, so it wasn't so bad. Mommy couldn't stay in the room with me because of the x-rays. But daddy did great trying to make me as comfortable as possible. The test showed that I had no reflux, which is super great! My diverticulum (the little extra pocket off of my bladder) actually looked a tad smaller than when the test was done last year.

When I was all done the nurse gave me a cool handmade stuffed fish from the Blue Bird Auxiliary... pretty cool huh? I am not sure who that group is, but I think it's really cool that they care enough to make things for kids who have to be in the hospital..

After the test I went to see Dr. Bartholomew, my urologist, and he said that I don't have to come back for a whole year! Rock on!

Other than this I am doing super great! I am learning to eat with a fork, loving to be outside and pretty much am on the go every waking second. I'm so blessed!

Thirsty Thursday...

If you haven't tried the fruit smoothies from Sonic, you should! My mommy got a strawberry banana one and I yelled until she gave it to me. Boy was I glad that I got it! It was delish!

Tomorrow I will have my VCUG done. This picture is from the last one I did in Oct. Please pray that all will go well and they'll get my IV in on the FIRST try! I'll let you know how it goes. This is a test done to check my kidney and my bladder function. I know everything is fine, I just have to reassure my docs!

My baby brother!

Mom and dad went to the perinatalogist on Monday. This is the same specialist that they went to when I was in mommy's tummy. They have chosen not to do any genetic testing or amniocentesis on the new baby, just like they didn't on me. BUT... so far everything appears to be normal! My little bro has two kidneys, a three-vessel cord, and his eye sockets look to be the correct size! So we are so thankful for that. We are leaving it all in God's hands and we're hoping for a healthy baby! They will continue to monitor him closely through level II ultrasounds... the next one is on June 1.
