Savannah's Scopes 3/14/13

 Savannah went to the hospital to have some scopes done a few weeks ago. She was so good for us! She wasn't very happy  about changing out of her cute pink pajamas and into the hospitals gown. But she was bribed with lots of stickers. :) 

A pediatrician brought out some doctor equipment for Savannah to play with. She loved it! She was so excited and kept saying that it was just like hers!

Dr. Love!

 Savannah got to go in a little wagon to get put under sedation and have her scopes done.  I was so glad that it only took about an hour.

 She had a UTI that day. What a surprise! LOL J/K  They gave her some antibiotics.I guess Savannah has some kinda funny anatomy. Her bladder is kinda rotated.  Over the last couple of years She has had a lot of UTI's. A lot of them, she gets very high fevers, sometimes up to 104 or 105 even and very lethargic and shaky. Most of her ones lately haven't been that bad luckily. I don't think she feels any pain, but her urine has a strong order, which is usually how I know.  Her urologist is worried that she is refluxing urine from her bladder up into her kidneys, like what Xander had.  It would explain why when she gets a Urinary Tract Infection, (UTI), it will tend to make her more sick and make her kidneys more prone to scarring.  It might also be why her kidneys measured a little smaller this last ultrasound that she had the month before.  They want to repeat that study and next month she will have a VCUG and have sedation for it.  If it is refluxing then her Urologist will do surgery on her bladder to correct it soon.

Savannah was so sad when she woke up. She wanted me and she wanted to go home. Then she was sad because she said, her bus wasn't coming, and she wanted to go to school. :( It is so hard seeing her so sad. It just tears at my heart.  The nurses were so sweet and gave her this cute owl for being so brave and Court gave her the I Pad. They distracted her for a while. On the way home and for the rest of the day she would randomly start to cry that it hurt. But, she wanted to play outside and with her brother the rest of the day! The next night there was a little blood, but not much, so that was a relief.  I am so proud of my little Savannah for being so brave. I know I've said this before but, she really is my little hero. She has been through so much.  She is the happiest person I know and I am so blessed to have her for my daughter!

That Friday, for Show And Tell at her school she wanted to take her blue hospital bracelet, owl, and all of her princess stickers that she got and now had them on an empty tissue box. She is so funny! I wouldn't let her take her hospital pillow though. She sleeps with it all every night. LOL :)
