Hoping for answers

Today we are in Kansas City.

One hospitalization in January for a kidney infection.  


The day we got there (chubby baby= IV in the head)

The day we left.


And a surgery six weeks later to remove a cyst from his bladder (which got him a little bit of local attention.)




Only to come back six weeks later (which we knew might happen, but hoped it wouldn't). Poor Corbin has had a tough start. He takes antibiotics every day, and a fever for him means going straight to the ER (which we have only had to worry about once.) But, today we are at Mercy Children's Hospital in KC, hoping a pediatric urologist has some answers. Our little guy will be undergoing sedation (which made him super crabby last time) and testing. Then, on to an afternoon appointment with a doctor. We are just so grateful they got him an appointment in a mater of weeks (opposed to the months Little Rock was willing to wait.)

So, if you have a minute, all prayers on his behalf are welcome. We love this smiley little guy, and just want him to feel better for good.

Kick this, Corbin! You are stronger than this kidney nonsense! Thinking of you all!!!

Prayers for Corbin! He's a tough little guy!

Ashley, you guys are in my prayers. I hope you get the answers you are looking for. Sedation does make them crabby. I find that nursing (if you are; I don't know) pras they come out of it really helps.

If he got half of his mother's stubbornness, he won't let this keep him down.

so hard to have a baby in this position. Hope it will be a simple, easy diagnosis. Praying for y'all.

Saying a prayer for you, David, and little Corbin!

Lots of prayers for little Corbin! And some extra prayers for you, because I'm sure this is hard for you too. I hope the doctor has some good things to say today - like some kind of easy solution??

Those kidneys are kind of important so we hope they get fixed and working like they should. Corbin is such a happy little guy, we want to see him well again too.
