And some not-so-great news…

17 Nov

I have been putting off writing about this, but little Alex has a kidney condition and will undergo an operation this coming Tuesday. Luckily both her kidneys are working well, she just has a partial obstruction of one of her ureters (the tubes going from the kidney to the bladder). It’s a fairly simple procedure as far as they go, but still a major operation.

    Hi Katie,
    I’ve been following your updates on your blog. I’m so sorry to hear about Alex! (another thing to blame on Doug, eh? πŸ˜‰ just kidding). I hope everything goes well and that she recovers quickly, and that you guys cope okay with it too.
    all the best!

    I am really, really behind on my blog reading, so I apologize for the lateness of my post. I’m so sorry to hear this, but glad that everything is OK now. She is so adorable, Katie!

    Thanks, Allison! No problem. I totally know how it is. And I feel really lucky that even with the flu episode Alex recovered so quickly!
