Test Day

Something that goes along with having Spina Bifida is the need to keep a close watch on your bladder and kidneys.

Sam David had a Video Urodynamics 6 months ago and the results were not good at all.

But, thanks to a new medicine regimen and a strict cathing schedule, we saw some improvement when we went for a follow-up Video Urodynamics today.

Don't let this picture fool you.

Sam David was being his typical silly self.

Here's my sweet, silly, wiggle-worm monkey!

SD did a knock-out job having the test done and also rocked the ultrasound that was to follow.

While his reflux did not completely go away, it did improve somewhat.

Six months ago his reflux rated at a grade 5.

That is terrible!

Today, it rated at a grade 3.

Small improvement.

But, we will take it!

He will be starting a new medicine and follow-up in 6 months to see if an augmentation will be needed.

But, for now, we will just continue as usual.

We will cross that bridge later, if needed.

Until then, SD will just be busy driving us all crazy with his super cool and wild personality.
