Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

Okay, skip the ER
As we were walking out the door to head to the ER, Claire's spina bifida nurse called. She told us NOT to go to the ER. We had left a message with her as she is our "go to" at MUSC. She explained that this is an infectious disease issue not actually a urinary issue and we need to see a Nephrologist not a Urologist right now! Hmmm? A Nephrologist is a doctor that specializes in kidney diseases. She got us an appointment with the best one at MUSC for Tuesday morning. In the mean time we are heading over to MUSC to get a urinalysis and culture done so she can get on some more antibiotics, but they are concerned that this may not be the same little critters as last time so they won't put her on anything until they know which critter it is! But, they will put her on something by the end of the day and she will remain on it until the new doctor, in the long line of Claire's specialists, figures out what the main issue is and can address it! Thank goodness! We have averted a hospital stay thanks to Stephanie, the super-nurse!
