Kidney Tests

Today was a long day at the hospital. Cooper had 2 different test done for his kidneys, the first was a diuretic renal scan and the second was a voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG). He had to have an IV and a catheter, he actually did ok when they put in the catheter, but he screamed his head off while they were putting in the IV.

For the diuretic renal scan, he had to be swaddled up in a blanket and then taped to a table like a mummy for 40 minutes while the scan was in progress…needless to say it was not very fun.

It felt good to get the tests over with and now we will have to wait until next Tuesday to find out the results.
