Excellent news!

I got an e-mail from Meri’s pediatrician last night and her last protein/creatinine ratio (measuring the amount of protein in her urine) was 2!!!  Yay!  The previous one was 9.6.  Now, normal is .2, so we still have a long way to go, and she’s been as low as 1.7 before and shot back up over 10, so Dr. Roy cautioned against popping the champagne, but still, I’m celebrating!!

  1. Oh, this is terrific news! So, it sounds like her kidneys are getting with the program.By the way, we got Meri’s thank-you card. So sweet of her to write it for us. We were touched by it and Sam was glad to know that Meri got the cards and appreciated them. I didn’t expect it, certainly, but it’s a great lesson in good manners for both kids involved!

  2. Beth, it’s so great that you have a reason to celebrate!  Sounds like Meri is doing well – what a relief!  I understand your cautious optimism, but it sure is nice to have a solid reason to be optimistic, eh?  My prayers are with you for continued improvement in Meri’s condition and an end to this whole chapter in her life!
