Good News at the Doctor's

We were back at Children's Mercy today for another visit with Dr. Blowey. Boston looks great and is growing well. He is at the top of the growth charts: 94% in height at 22 inches; 98% in weight at 11 pounds, 7 ounces and 97% in head circumference at 40 cm.

Boston's labs looked great. His protein level in his blood was stable again at 3.7, which is normal. All of his blood work was normal. We are waiting for the actual ratio of protein to creatinine in his urine, but the dipstick was negative for protein.

With all of this good news, Dr. Blowey said we can wait another month before having labs drawn again, and if those are normal, we will not have to go back to Children's Mercy until June.

We should get the results of the repeat genetic test back from Athena Diagnostics in a couple of weeks.
