Aleisha's Broken

My little sister Aleisha had surgery in her bladder area on Tuesday and we went up to Primary Children Hospital to visit her. Aleisha was being so funny because she was so high on pain medication. If you know Aleisha, then you know that she loves to tell stories about what is going on in her life. Well it was 10 times worse with her being so drugged up. She would talk to everyone and everything and anything at a million miles per hour. I’m glad she was happy and not in too much pain that night. As of today, she is still in the hospital and they are still waiting to see how she is doing. She keeps having really bad muscle spasms in her bladder and not adapting to the pain medication very well. We hope that she will be able to come home today.
To tell you a little bit about why Aleisha had to go into surgery she kept getting bladder and kidney infections that would make her sick. In April she got really sick and never fully recovered from that point on. Aleisha would get better and then all of a sudden she would be really sick with 103 temperature. For a full month she was in and out of the doctor’s office. The Doctors just keep saying it was a bladder infection and then it was a kidney infection and then by the third time being really sick we knew something was wrong. Aleisha finally got tests taken and we found that her kidneys were misshaped and her tubes that lead to her kidneys were not working properly and they would have to go in and reconstruct her valves to her kidneys.
We love our little leish and hope she gets better soon!
It will take about 6 to 8 weeks for her to fully recover from the surgery.

I didn't even know she was sick until about a week ago when Grandpa told me! I hope she is doing better soon. She is so sweet and we love her so much!
