Today was Wilhelmina’s appointments at the hospital with the Urologist and the Nephrologist…
I finally met her doctor who, as everyone has said, is so nice and so soft-spoken. He has such a calming nature that it is hard to not be at ease.
Good news! Though she does have quite a bit of scar tissue, her kidney function is at 30-35% which is great and which means that she will be having the reimplantation surgery and in the end will have two functioning kidneys.
We also have a date… the 11th of October, the day after Thanksgiving.
4 more weeks of the nephrostomy tube, about a week in the hospital and then she will be on the road to recovery. She will need a few more tests in the future to make sure there is no reflux and everything is working well, but the worst will hopefully be over soon…
This is excellent news!
Fantastic news!!! So happy that there is an ‘end’ in sight for her, you and the boys!
I’m so glad that you are getting closer to the end of this trying time. Wonderful news.
What wonderful news! This is similar to where we were with Xavier two years ago, an implantation surgery the day right after Thanksgiving. Good luck!
That’s wonderful news. It’s almost over! It must be reassuring to also finally meet the doctor in person 😉
