We saw the nephrologists & they are starting with an ultrasound of his kidneys looking also at the blood vessels coming into his kidneys. They suspect that this is just a temporary problem & not something more serious, but they want to make sure. They may do a chest X-ray later to look at his heart, but they weren't sure about that yet. 

So far all of his labs have looked good. The nephrologists decided not to order more kidney labs because the function tests were good & the other tests would look for more rare issues. The only other labs would be looking at his hormones released by the kidneys but the IV fluid he's had can mess with those numbers. So they are holding those for now. 

They had to page the ultrasound tech to come in so no idea when it will happen. I'll post more when we know more.
