so far today has been an unproductive day. Tomarrow will be the day where his so tired out of it and stairing becuase of being in here. But we will see. But we will already be unhooked and ready for the next test by then. So we will see. There have been a few instances so well go off those.

Then tomarrw its off to the big apts. Renal ultrasound an the urologist team. I will post as soon as I am able to.He has kidney reflux which is not good at al. So the Ultrasoumd will tell us if thre is damage and how big his bladder is.

THank you for all of your thoughts and prayers. They mean so much to us.

Hospital and Wish trip update Pics included

Finally got some time to post. Ty's veeg went ok. We won't get any results of that for a few weeks as our dr is out of town and we had to leave for Ty's ultrasound before the dr that was on could come in and talk to us.

His renal ultrasound was unchanged so his kidneys still look good We were so thrilled to hear that. First they want to do another spinal mri to make sure his spine has not retethered. The urologist said we have two options. Botox injection in his bladder or the bladder augmentation surgery. The botox injection is a newer procedure and has not been done on many kids. As a matter of fact Ty will be the 3rd patient to have this at our hospital. That certainly didnt ease my fears and the tears began to flow I am happy in one sense that we have another option before going to the big surgery but uneasy about something being so new and not allot of outcome studies on it. But we have made the decision to go ahead with the botox and pray for the best outcome. They will do a cystoscopy and insert the botox then a few weeks later he will have a urodynamics study. If it shows no change then they will repeat the botox then do another urodynamics study a few weeks later. If the botox is helping to lower his pressures and his bladder is growing then they will do the botox injections as needed or approx every 6-9 mos or can be as early as 3 months. We would know when we start seeing symptoms again.If there is no change then we will know that the botox isnt going to work and will start planning for the bladder augmentation.

Now about our trip. IT IS ON!!!The botox injections will not hinder the trip and if they have to do the bladder aug we can wait till after his Wish trip!! I will be calling our MAW ladies tomarrow to let them know We will have something to look forward to and talk about while he goes through the botox and if he needs the Augmentation we can work on the scrap book with the pics and go back through the trip all over again

Some pics

all smothered in shaving creme always a great thing for hospital stays


were leaving yay! Look at my fuzzy hair


yesterday looked like it was going to not be a so great day but see next pic



A picnic in the woods yesterday

Im so glad the renal ultrasound showed no change in Ty's kidney's and you have another option before considering the surgery. I am so hoping the botox is just the thing to help.

Yep he better watch out for Ty unless he chickens out just before. I am going to make sure both kids are on the outter side LOL

Thank you. He did pretty good. He played with the shaving creme and food coloring for quite a while till I went down and got a ball and had him all over the room
I just spoke with the neurosurgeon nurse and she said he want's the mri done with contrast. I don't ever remember Ty getting contrast is that usually given through and iv?

Still trying to get ahold of our Wish coordinator

Yah! I'm glad his kidneys look good! I hope that the botox works for him and you can avoid the big surgery. Just out of curiousity, where was Ty's cord tethered? I just thought I'd throw this out there, but last year GI really wanted neurosurgery to re-scan Ali's spine, but her neurosurgeon indicated that a tethered cord post repair will always look tethered on MRI. In other words, it's not accurate in determining whether or not a cord has retethered. I don't know if that's unique to the type of tc Ali has, but I just thought I'd share in case it's helpful!

Ty looks great in his pics. I'm so glad the trip is on!

Yes Kelly that is our question too. I thought once the repair was done that it always shows something. I have an email in to the nurse who is going to ask him that and also why are they doing a contrast mri this time and not last time when he went in with normal results and took a chance and it was there kwim? We wonder what difference the contrast will show and why wasnt it used last time. We love our neurosurgeon he is absolutley wonderful but we are just curious as well. Just to help us understand a bit better. He is out of the office right now so It may be a little while before we know.

I am really biting my fingers on this mri as I thought this would be something that was behind us. Ty did not react well to all of the pain meds they had him on to keep him sedated to stay still. I thought once it was over we wouldnt have to go back through this again. I know there isnt a huge chance it is retethered but last night he was bending over and he said "ouch mommy I feel like I just had my back surgery when I do this". So Im wondering about scar tissue. It hasnt even been a year

I am glad to hear your trip is ready to go. I am not sure how botox works on organs, but it did great wonders on Tyler's neck to fix his severe torticollis and there were no side effects! The hospital visits are never fun! I can't wait to read more about your trip plans!

Hi! The main thing that I see that could be a problem is that Ty already has swollowing problems and the big side effect is that if he already has it it can make it worse for a while
