Clinic Visit Today

Henry's swelling issue, has not yet subsided. We moved our clinic visit forward to today and made the trip to Baltimore. It was a pretty run of the mill day for Henry at clinic, however we did have an extended conversation with the doctor about the possible causes of Henry's swelling. His right eye continues to be completely swollen shut despite some attempts to correct.

Blood and urine were taken today to run some tests. Later this afternoon we received a call saying that some of his levels are off a bit. There is no definitive cause as yet, but we've been recommended to increase his protein intake and make a nominal attempt at reducing his sodium.

So we're focused on eggs and chicken nuggets for tomorrow and we'll try to reduce the chips. There are several other avenues to check out so we'll await further opinion. For now, while it's nothing urgent, he's at least comfortable. He's not complained at all.

Thankfully, little H is feeling well and that the swelling isn't causing any pain. I love all the photos. Sure seems like a trip that everyone will remember. Just love all the smiles.
