    My poor small boy

    It never seems to end for him ... he has had a series of UTIs the last few months and has another one right now, just got home from the hospital. He had his kidneys scanned Thursday, and it turns out he has renal scarring = permanent kidney damage = has to have surgery to correct the reflux. It's not a minor surgery, quite tricky to do according to my brother and several sources I've read. Thank god though, we live near UNC and a well published, well known pediatric urologist who has been practicing since 1988, so he's experienced.

    So if you are the praying type, please send up a little prayer for my little boy ....

    Jeez that poor kid has been through the ringer! You're all in my thoughts.

    Poor little guy. I do hope this surgery fixes everything and he can get back to being a playful little boy. Being sick at that age is not fun, but they bounce back quick. I'll be keeping you all in my thoughts.

    Ami,

    Your child has an SCI also? I hope things go well for him and he gets better soon.
