It was long and busy, but all in all it went well.
At the renal ultrasound we found out that he only has one kidney.
At the ABR we found out that he has impaired hearing in his good ear, as well as his bad ear, so he will need hearing aids on both.
I didn't get any results on his brain image, or skeletal issues....hopefully tomorrow I'll know some more.
His EKG went well.
He screamed like he thought he was going to die at the X-rays, and he had to have a lot of them!
He had to have a lot of sedation, and so it took him a little longer to come out of it. Like almost 2 hours.
Tonight he just looks tough, he really needs to go to bed :)
Up bright and early in the morning, we need to leave the house by 6:30 am! Yikes. That's early for us.
He has 5 appointments tomorrow, then hopefully none for a while. Top of my list for the next round of appts is sedated dentistry, he REALLY needs that done, and of course the cleft palate. Then we're still working on the glasses and hearing aids.
Can you imagine what his life would have been like if he had stayed in an institution all his life? He wouldn't be able to hear, to see well, to speak, and he probably would have withered away from malnutrition. Thank God we found him, and he found us :) He is SUCH a blessing.
I'll post some pictures tomorrow, after Shane downloads them from his phone.
I always have a headache on the appointment days.....so I was trying to figure out why. All I could come up with is that I usually wear the same pair of capri's because they're my only 'nice' ones. They are also too tight. So I have come to the conclusion that the headaches are a result of lack of oxygen...yet....I had a piece of cake at the hospital.
