I love that he is finally able to share his concerns, thoughts and feelings. Just a few short months ago, he wasn't able to do that. And as a mother, I do some pretty good "guessing" but it's not the same as KNOWING what is going on.
|Before the Biopsy|
The Pediatric Nephrologist Dr. Perlman said all went very well. Only had to take one small section and she said it had only one TINY bleed. (Which is GREAT news!!)
7pm update: no bleeding still. They expected at least SOME amount of blood but NOTHING!!
So what have we done all day? Jacob has been resting, playing Nintendo, watching movies, reading books and eating. Me? I've been working on the computer, channel surfing, eating.
(We also had an unexpected visit from a friend, Rich. Thanks for the salad and fruit (knows me well). That ensured I didn't have to go down and pick out dinner! )
|After, watching TV|
So we're in this new
And for me, I went downstairs earlier and they had chicken ceasar salad (huge) for under $5. I couldn't eat it all.
We realized this is the first time that he's been in the hospital since he was born. And since I wasn't there with him then, I've never spent time with him in the hospital. In fact, it's the first time I've spent a night alone with him. So we're enjoying just "hanging out".
I just asked Jacob if he would like to share anything. He said, "Just what I'm enjoying."
Me: What's that?
Him: The resting and the quiet.
We are so very thankful for all the prayers that this go smoothly. And we will be expecting results in about 2 weeks (which we will of course share).
