It was a long day of waiting, but I think our worries are taking a promising turn. We finally got a call from the pediatrician's office later than expected tonight requesting some further tests for Mr. McKay. Matt was dispatched to collect the "sample" kit and we were instructed to pick up some special concoctions from the hospital pharmacy early tomorrow and add them to McKay's meds as soon as possible. (Apparently no regular pharmacies have the stuff tonight.)
And while I was not able to actually speak to the doc about what today's meeting of the minds concluded, the course of action seems to indicate a leaning toward something infectious rather than physiological. YEA! I will take germ issues over broken or leaking parts any day.
Of course, I'm sure we'll find out more in the days to come when the tests get back and we see what's causing McKay's little body to behave this way. I am so glad we are starting our mystery-solving with the non-invasive stuff first. Of course, I'm not the poor babe swaddled in a saran wrap-lined diaper tonight--it's for the sample. Oh the things we do for our babies!
Thank you for your prayers and concern. I truly believe we can and do will things to happen, for better or worse. And I'm certain your will has brought untold blessings into our lives. XOXO
