Hugh update

Thanks to all for their kind inquiries about Hugh's results. It would appear that our eight weeks of diligence in record keeping helped in some ways. His kidneys show a decrease in dilation. However, his bladder is just too large and even though we have seem some improvement, it is not sufficient to be classed as "satisfactory". The next step (apart from continued record keeping - more charts argh! - I think Hugh is up for it more than I am!) is for Hugh to go and have a cystoscopy. We are sort of hoping that they do find something (and remove it) and that would be the final piece in the puzzle to help Hugh's bladder and long term health. When this procedure will occur is unsure - it is through the public health system and not an emergency, so who knows. So it's still all positive and I am happy that steps are being taken to help my boy. Thanks once again.

Thank you for posting this, as I've been eager to hear your news. I'm glad that things have improved somewhat and that there is a way that they can help that improvement along!

Hugh is such an amazing boy and it sounds like he's handling all of this quite well. Being the Mum is the hardest part, I think! We continue to send positive thoughts and much love your way!!
