Ryan is again producing blood in his urine. We still are looking into the cause. Sue took a urine sample to Dr. Rodriguez yesterday, but these take three days to completely culture, if I remember correctly. Although, we could get preliminary results back sooner.
Preemptively, Ryan began a seven-day course of antibiotics. This antibiotic is broad-based and effective against most urinary tract infections. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that everything is well in his kidneys and bladder.
Recall from my earlier post yesterday that I was up most of the night with Ryan the night before. I did catch a nap yesterday afternoon so I’m not completely zonked, but the nurse called out last night making me stay up with Ryan. Wait, I take that back… I am completely zonked.
Elizabeth Storms, who has taken care of Ryan’s (and Sue’s and Kari’s) hair came to the house yesterday. As always, she did an amazing job with his hair.
Sue and Kari swear by her. Ryan really wouldn’t let anyone else touch his hair (before he buzzed it off in college). I’ve always been a fan of Ryan’s longer hair. Sue likes it short. We have the same disagreement about my hair, but she has backed off a bit since I buzzed it. Maybe I was right after all? Anyhow, she drove home her point that I needed a haircut when she french-braided my hair. I felt so European!
