Jeremiah


ahhhhh, my baby boy!!!


Some of you will know that Jere has had ongoing health issues since he was 5. Kidney stuff and other stuff....*sigh*
Well we have had to have a whole other round of investigations as the poor laddies has been having massive pain in his tum tum. They first found NINE enlarged/swollen lymph nodes in his tummy, and for the last few weeks we have been back and forward to doctors to work out what the HECK is going on.
So today we went back to the Pead.........and had some xrays.........then back to the pead......
and so far we have found Jere has a kidney stone, a blocked up intestine/bowel, and HIGH CHOLESTROL!!!!!!
His cholestrol is not from his diet, but rather his bad Genes!
So we are starting some stuff to clear the blockage, having some more bloods for his cholestrol then starting meds, and watching the stone carefully!!!!
This would probably be too much for some mums, but for us this is actually GOOD NEWS!!!! This is all treatable, and that is the bestest ever............and it means by the time we get to LONDON he will be so so so so so so so so much better.
Happy Day!!!
