This coming Monday you will, once again be put to sleep for a Renal scan to check on your kidney. You are only 6 and your medical file already dwarfs my own. This is the second time you will have gone through this, but this time it may show the need for the doctors to operate on your kidney. The radioactive Isotope they will putting through you is so they can watch the flow of liquids and try to decide what action to take.
Because of your Down Syndrome, you won't know what's going on. You don't understand why you have to keep going back to the doctors and why you have to be put through the tests over and over. Likewise, if it becomes necessary for an operation, you won't know why that is being done either. I want you to know though, little buddy, that your dad will always be in your corner no matter what. You are the light of my life! You are what makes me the happiest. I have never in my life been as proud of anyone or anything as I am of you. When you walk into a room, everyone becomes happy. You are the kind of magic our world needs. We'll get through this my lil man. I will love you until forever comes!
Many hugs my boy!
