I'm doing well, thanks for asking!
Kody had his xrays done today (called a voiding cystourethrogram) and it went so smoothly I was shocked. They had to catheterize him and shoot dye up into his bladder, and I was expecting the worst--that I'd be helping hold down my screaming newborn. But he barely cried, thank God! They used a numbing solution beforehand and I think that helped a lot. I also brought a bottle and gave it to him at the first signs of crying, and he settled right down. Phew! Plus the xrays showed no signs of the urine refluxing back up into the kidneys, which is what they were concerned was happening. Such a relief, on so many levels.
I feel a little the worse for wear after such a busy day today, but I'm sure in a few days I'll be much better. Just taking it one day at a time.
