Yesterday morning I took Ryan to get all sorts of imaging done. He had several x-Rays, a dexascan (bone density), and a CT scan.
The CT scan was of his abdomen and pelvis. The urologist ordered this to see if, perhaps, kidney stones or some other blockage was causing Ryan’s recurring urinary tract infections. The technician read the scan while Ryan was off getting other images and reported to me that Ryan’s kidneys and bladder look great. Phew!
We had some follow-up x-rays done and sent these off to various doctors, but right now I’m most interest in the dexascan. This will tell us Ryan’s bone density. I hope to hear something today but it will likely be sometime next week.
Some might recall from Monday’s post that Sue took Ryan’s urine over to be cultured. The results came in yesterday. He has another UTI. Again, we caught this before it started causing him any major discomfort. We are using a product called AZO Standard that was given to us through the Wish List (Thank you!) to relieve Ryan’s discomfort until the antibiotics kick-in.
The warm weather over the past two days allowed for Ryan (and me) to enjoy the new patio. I took him out to catch some rays and breath in some fresh air. I situated him so his eyes were just slightly away from the sun and let the warmth hit his face. It’s hard to believe it’s this warm in February.
I even grilled out last night! This was the first time in nearly three years. We had some Omaha Steaks that were kindly sent to us last year that I saved for just this. It would appear that I didn’t lose any of my culinary skills in grilling the perfect steak. Yum! Bobby Flay has nothing on me when it comes to grilling out. I got his “throwdown” right here. Or, should I say, “smack down”. Oh no, I didn’t!
If the weather is nice this weekend I believe I’ll throw on some hot dogs and hamburgers.
