Trip to Children's hospital today
seeit2 posted:
I took DD to the city's children's hospital today for a bone density scan - like the one you get when you turn 40 to find out that you have osteoporosis. In all of the urology appts she's had lately they determined that she is peeing out a ton of calcium, and the concern is that there is something wrong with her kidneys and she is not processing calcium correctly so her bones are not getting what they need to grow correctly. So we did the scan to find out how they look, and will hopefully get results this week. Luckily I had been through the same scan myself so I could tell her exactly what to expect.

It was basically a 90-minute drive for a 15-minute appointment, but we had a fun trip anyway.

90 minutes is quite a drive, but at least you had a fun trip!

Hopefully the test results turn out ok.

Let us know the results!

I'm not in the car with the kids very much anymore - it's sort of fun to have that one-on-one time - and I think they talk more freely since it is the back of my head instead of my face!
