We also go back to Minneapolis April 20 and 21st for a round of tests as well as SB clinic. This time he will have some testing done on his bladder and kidneys that we haven't had done in over a year and half. Last time we had a couple of these tests done we weren't able to complete them because they were simply to painful for Westin. I pray that things go better this time and we will be able to distract him with the I pad. These tests measure the size and thickness of the bladder as well as how much its able to hold and also what grade of reflux he has. It also measures the pressure in the bladder. All of these things are very important, because you need to have a healthy bladder and kidneys. On the 21st we will meet with Westins team of Drs's and go over the test results as well as what our plan is for going forward. We will get a new RX for braces for Westin. It will be interesting to see what they suggest. If they think SMO's will still be OK or if they will want to move him back to an AFO. His local PT thinks that hes doing well with the SMOs and that we should be just fine continuing with those.
We also have the BEST news for Westins Urologist. Back at the end of February Westin stayed with my mom for 5 days and she was able to potty train him! This is almost unheard of with Spina Bifida kiddos. This is such a HUGE accomplishment, words cant even describe how proud and happy we are for him!!!!
Now if it would stay warm, so we can get outside, play in the mud, and find bugs!
