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!
