Appointment with Urologist

Friday was our appointment with the urologist. We were pleased with what we heard. The doctor explained everything very clearly and gave us a new antibiotic to give to Riley daily. This one is a capsule that we break open and give her half each night mixed with something to eat. This is so much easier than giving her the liquid. This one is tasteless, so she doesn't even know we've mixed it in. Basically, she will stay on this antibiotic until and if she outgrows the Vesico Ureteral Reflux. She will get the test each year to see if it has resolved itself. If it hasn't done so by the time she is 5, then we will have to consider a procedure to fix it. However, if before then, she has 2 more infections then we will have to do the procedure at that time. There is a risk of damage to her kidneys with continued infections. So, that's basically it. I thought I'd let you all know. Thank you so much for your prayers. We will keep praying that Riley does not have any more infections while on the antibiotics.
