So today during preschool my phone rang with a UVA number. My stomach dropped when I heard the doctor on the other end. Usually if it is quick call to say labs look great one of the nurse practicioners call with the good news. In this world if the doctor calls it means a conversation needs to take place.
David's labs look great except for his Creatinine and BUN. Both of those are kidney indicators and it is a slight bit concerning that his is creeping up when the school and us have been diiligent about getting his 50 ounces in each day. Sigh.
She quizzed me about his fluid intake and then contacted the kidney doctor. Dr. D. then called me back and said as a precaution, the kidney doctor wants to see us within the next two to three weeks. I asked her if she was worried and she said no but this is why we watch solo kidney kids well. Sigh.
So we should be getting an appointment letter in the mail early next week with an appointment to talk with the kidney doctor. This also may affect his November scans because the contrast dye is hard on the kidneys and they may switch to an MRI.
I am trying not to worry but we have been DILLIGENT about his fluid intake and David does not drink caffeinated beverages at all. So please add David's kidney to your prayer list:( sigh.
