Headed Back to Philly

In the car on our way back to Philly after a great weekend at home. We did have a little bit of a scare and came close to going to the ER on Saturday, but thankfully didn't end up needing to go in the end. When I gave Stephen a bath on Friday night I noticed his diaper had collected pinkish looking urine. After ripping it apart, I realized he had been peeing bloody urine and his diaper Saturday morning had much of the same. So I paged the nephrologist at CHOP and at first she wanted us to go to the ER for a urine culture. But after speaking with both the urologist and transplant surgeon, they all figured it was probably the stint causing some irritation and we could deal with it next week when we got back. And then by Saturday evening, his urine cleared up. So I'm really glad we didn't go through the whole mess of going to our ER!

Despite that scare, we had fun hanging out at home and playing with all "new" toys. We have appointments again on Monday and Thursday and then we'll see if we come home again and maybe take a day trip to the shore or somewhere else. We'll just wait and see what the week brings. But we'll definitely miss Mabel! These two had fun playing this weekend for sure!


  1. Hi Lindsey,
    So happy you had a good weekend at home. I am sure Mabel missed Stephen as much as he missed her. We will be waiting to hear good reports from your appointments on Mon and Thurs.
    Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers...
    Aunt LuAnn & Uncle Dick
