Not nearly as bad....

So Emmi's fever is up to 101. She is complaining of her side hurting. Damn kidney. But the good news is.....IT ISN'T AS BAD AS IT LOOKS! There is no actual damage to the kidney. Yet. Everything I found out was followed by "yet." But the good news is we can treat the symptoms (the kidney infections) for now. No surgery! I should be over the moon, but this was a little too close for comfort. We have another renal ultrasound scheduled for one month. If there is no change, we can go back to every six months. We do still have to do the weekly work up, but still... this is good news. I will be very happy in a little bit, after I process it.

I'm glad to hear that things aren't quite as bad as you initially thought. Still, I know it shocked the pants off you, and that's never pleasant. :( I hope wee Emmi stays well!

I can understand your not being able to just switch into celebratory mode. But it's good news nonetheless and I'm so happy for you guys, and relieved. Take care of yourselves, maybe you need a sitter one night and a dinner out with that man of yours.

I'm so glad to hear that it isn't as bad as you were thinking even if it is followed by a yet. At least you still have some time before she needs surgery but I'll still be keeping you in my prayers.

It is great news! I am so happy for you and Emmi! Process it, get yourself a big honking Fourbucks today and write a post that makes us laugh our asses off!

I just read your blog for the first time. I have enjoyed it thoroughly. I'm happy to hear that she doesn't need surgery. The rest of your blog has me laughing and a wonderful way to start my day. My favorite word is the same as yours, and I used to have a friend that would take puffs off of a cigar as well. You are a Houstonian too. I will most certainly check your blog out quite frequently. Have a great day.
