Skye has been doing well and is largely pain-free. She’s been back to school since Tues 19 Feb.
Skye is headed to Johns Hopkins this AM for three outpatient procedures:
- They’re going to take the stint out of Skye’s left kidney. This stint was put in an effort to improve the functioning of that kidney. The stint has been the only thing making Skye uncomfortable, so it’ll be great that this is finally coming out. They’ll be able to remove the stint non-surgically.
- We’ll also be doing two tests to help evaluate Skye’s kidneys:
For this test, Skye will get be given a radioisotope through an IV and they will be able to take a picture of how things are flowing through her system 2-3 hours later.
Similar to what women experience when doctors evaluate their pregancies, the doctors will be able to use sound waves to evaluate Skye’s kidneys.
I’m not sure how much we’ll learn today but when we know something I’ll post it.
Earlier, I had posted about concerns with Skye’s thyroid functioning. We were happy to learn that all the panels came back normal.
