The Googler

A little bit about myself- I'm a huge Googler. With the little bit of information that the ultrasound tech gave me about a distended bladder and a cyst on the kidneys, I took it and ran with it. I was constantly on my computer tring to figure out what it all meant. After many hours of research over just a few days time, I came acress a website called the Fetal Hope Foundation. On there, it described five different conditions that can be treated with in-utero surgery or intervention. The first term I came to know was called LUTO. It stands for Lower Urinary Tract Obstruction. I had not a clue if this is what our baby had, but it would explain the distended bladder and did have to do with the kidneys, though not a cyst. Now I would just have to wait to see the specialist to find out the truth.
