It's MRI Day:
This morning I arrived and was so happy to see Kayla in such great spirits still. Shortly after arriving she agreed it would be a good idea to go take a shower and have a nice hair scrub by momma. She kept telling me how good it felt and how do I know how to scrub just right. We laughed and joked and took our time. The chaplain came in and met us. A few nurses came in to ask questions. Kayla kept telling everyone how starving she was. Then at about 11:00 she started to get a head ache. I laid her down in my lap and rubbed her temples. She was doing really well other then that though. They gave her a small amount tylenol to ease the pain. Finally at about 12:00, a nice guy arrived to lead us down to the MRI room. She got to ride on a nice long bed with wheels all the way there. She thought that was pretty cool.
We entered a big room just outside of the MRI room and prepared for her to go in. They warned us that they will be shaving part of her hair and sections where the probes will go. As hard as it was for us to nod in agreement, we did. The nurse especially was very very kind. He requested a photo with the new MRI celebrity. I rubbed her hand and dad rubbed her leg while we let the "giggle gas" take effect. Right now, Kayla is having a nice siesta. They warned us that it could take anywhere between 1-3 hours before we get to see her again. Once we see her, she will look a little more like a "patient".
They are thinking that the surgery might be early Thurs morning. We will know much more after these tests are finished.
