Quick Hospital Update

After almost 8 hours we are home from the hospital for the moment. Eli does not have a bowel obstruction BUT his right kidney is incredibly large, all the way down to his bladder, and he has Level 3 reflux. His kidney isn't causing the problems, BUT it is making the reflux worse potentially. His doc immediately started him on medication for the reflux, and he is back at the doc in the morning for a weight recheck and he will be going to a urologist for deeper testing on his kidney. She gave some reccomendations on different positions to nurse in, and to help him pace himself with nursing, and soooo many more instructions.
We are all exhausted and hoping to get a bit of sleep tonight. More information tomorrow.
