Ultrasound scan

A few weeks ago we went to the doctor because Tim had a rash, nothing much but just better to get these things checked, it was diagnosed by phone as being viral (yes by phone!) but I was told that if I wanted it to be looked at then I could take him down.
Well I don’t know about you, but I am not keen on rashes being diagnosed by phone, so decided to take him down and I was so glad I did.
She throughly checked him over and confirmed it was a viral rash, but one of the first questions that she asked was if his stomach is always that bloated.

I wanted to cheer from the rooftops, finally someone was listening, or rather they had seen and actually agreed with me, you see the trouble is all the hospital appointments have been in the mornings before the bloating starts.

She wasn’t happy with it so said she would speak to his kidney consultant but would also refer him for an ultrasound scan.

So here we are this week he has had the ultrasound.
Everything mostly appeared normal, nothing to worry about kidney wise, but soo much gas that she couldn’t get a proper look at his liver.

So now to wait for an appointment with the doctor that referred him to discuss this.

As usual they were surprised how good he was, he initially didn’t want to take his coat of (not easy to scan through a coat!) but once he knew he wasn’t going to ‘win’ he led on the couch and didn’t move.
