Hello :) This is a question for a Pediatric Nephrologist

Hello :) This is a question for a Pediatric Nephrologist or Pediatric Urologist. At my 20 weeks echo, Doctors told me that my amniotic fluid is lower than 5, the lungs looks smaller, the kidneys are at 13mm, so they are very small and they couldnt see his left foot. They told us that it would be better to terminate the pregnancy. We told them we wanted to give it a chance and have another echo 10 days later. When we re-did the echo they told us that the liquid is now at around 5, so it increased a bit. they could now see the left foot, the lungs looks ok, the thorax seems more normal but the kidneys are still small at 16mm. I am at 23 weeks of gestation. Is there anany thing we can do so the kidneys grow faster? And is there a chance forr the baby to live and not have problem in the future? Please I need all the help I can get....So I can make a difficult decision...I don’t want my child to go through dialysis. Thank you so much...

Hello doctor, this is regarding blood in the baby;s stool. We have been seeing streaks of blood on and off in her stool. Its bright red in color and we think its anal fissure. But we couldn t see any fissure in the anal walls. My pediatrician has suggested that we consult pediatric gastro specialist, since he believes blood with mucus is higher up in the rectum. What would a gastro do in this case. what tests will he run on the baby.

I have a question about after care of a pediatric heart recipient. My 2 year old granddaughter has had her new heart for 6 months and all is going well. The whole family is very careful to avoid any contaminant that could get her sick. Recently, I (not thinking) agreed to babysit some newborn puppies and now I want to go see my babygirl. My question is, how do I know if it is safe to be around her after being around the puppies? I might know better how to answer that if I knew the risks that being around puppies creates.
