Xander's Surgery for Grade 5 Vesicoureteral Reflux

Today, Xander had his appointments for his kidneys. He had ultrasounds done. Wow, he is a mommy's boy. He did not want me to put him down. It was so sad.Then after that, we went to have his VCRG test. Cathider and X Rays...It was awful...
Xander's kidneys are pretty much the same. Because of how small his left kidney is and his reflux they do not want to keep waiting to see if it will get any better. His surgery will be on January 20th. I am glad... relived that we aren't waiting anymore.There is only a 5 % chance of this surgery not working. That is comforting to know. But, with all of those feelings come all of the "what if's", all of the worrying, and the fears of him having surgery.All of the things that just make me want to hold my baby and cry.
Xander will also have an echo and his circumcision done while he is under. Today, they also saw that there is something wrong with Xander's bladder. After his post-opp they will schedule to do test to find out what is wrong.This is the other part that makes me want to cry. It just seems like at every ultrasound and every test, they find something else. At least with Savannah's and Xander's surgeries, they have been able to fix all of their little bodies quirks. We really are blessed.
