Sick Kids Followup

It's not often that you go to a hospital and leave with good news, but today's followup with Dr. Tesky in Nephrology at Sick Kids revealed something very positive indeed: Nathaniel's kidney function has improved since the last inspection, no doubt due to our discovery of his aversion to dairy products and the introduction of substitute formula, which has resulted in greater fluid intake, hence, his creatinine numbers dropping from the troubling mid-50s to the "normal" range of mid-30s.

Of course, Nathaniel was a real trooper throughout--not caring much for the ultrasound (and the near-hour-long wait!) or the bloodwork understandably--but the hospital's offering of cool toys and friendly staff made the afternoon pass with relative ease...
