Renal Scan Results

Mr Eli lost weight. He had gained 5oz in 4 days and yesterday he lost 2.5oz in 1 day. Not good. If he doesn't gain weight tonight we are back on the feeding tube tomorrow. He also had the renal scan this morning. Both kidneys did take on dye. The left fast and full, the right incredibly slow. Both drained, the left well, the right barely. The right is huge and VERY strange shaped with tons of dead tissue in the middle. Doc came by and Kansas City it is. She's calling KC to get the transfer papers going and to talk to the urologist there. Looks like though we will be heading up there on Monday.
Oh and his lungs xrays came back. He still has some of the puffiness but looking much better. So the antibiotics are working. Also kidney infection looking good!
We are going to try and sneak home on Sunday and have Christmas with our kids.
So now we are just waiting for some weight gain hopefully and for all the transfer info.
Here is a picture of Mr Eli in his Christmas PJ's this afternoon.
