Doctors Visits

First of all, did any paint get on the wall? LOL!

This week and next are going to be spent driving back and forth to the doctor's office.

Nathan had an appointment this morning with the nephrologist. He had a problem awhile back and had kidney stones. He had elevated amounts of calcium and salt in his urine and has been on medication for this for about 11 months. Unfortunately, his levels are still high and he is now on a second medicine for it.

He also has an appointment next week with the ear, nose, and throat specialist because he has not been able to breathe through his nose for quite some time now. It's been a few years but we are just getting to the doctor about it now because we have just been dealing with so many different medical issues with him.

He also has an appointment next week with the endocrynologist to check up on his growth. He is now 5'7" and doing quite well. Before we started the growth hormone, his doctor had said he would be lucky if he made it to 5'1". Stephen has an appointment with her as well to discuss the results of his blood work to see if there is an issue there.

None of this would be too much of a hassle if it weren't for the fact that all these doctors are specialists and are about an hour and a half away.
