Micah’s Urology Update

Today we met with a great pediatric urologist who has been studying Micah’s case. We learned a couple of things and have a plan for another test, date to be determined. *As a reminder, I am not a doctor and I am only trying to convey the information as we received it and try my […]

Micah’s Kidney Update

Our sweet boy had a rough day today. The results of Micah’s tests were not what we had hoped for. The issues to this point were in the left side of his urinary tract only. This scan showed severe reflux, a large ureter, and a smaller than normal kidney on both sides. We can not […]

Micah is 10 Months Old!

I’m one day late because of the amazing vacation we just got back from, but more on that later! Micah is 10 months old! Micah is becoming more independent every day, which is great. He is starting to have more preference over what toys he wants (usually whatever Harrison is currently holding) and plays independently […]
