We went back to see the urologist today, and Kaitlyn had a follow-up VCUG. This was the final test to see if the surgery was successful. The study showed that she did not have any reflux back into her kidneys.  Thank you, Jesus!!! 
These are the comparing X-rays.
Before surgery. (The dark line on the right side of the picture, is the contrast that they injected. You can see that as her bladder empties, a large amount of urine goes back up the ureter into her kidney.) 
After surgery, at the same point in the imaging study. No evidence of reflux is seen.
Again, we are so thankful that the surgery was successful.  She does have a significant amount of scaring on that left side, but her kidney function with both of them is very good. To God be all the glory!
