Big Day Tomorrow
Hello!! Today has been a day of smiling, laughing, kicking, cuddling, playing and fun with the kiddo!!(and a few naps in between) Thank you Lord for these days!! Tomorrow is going to be a big day of tests!! It will all start at 1am--that is the last time D will be able to eat for a LONG time! We will be wheeling down to the OR at 7:00 am to get anesthesia....again. Then he will be getting a special type of CAT scan that will measure every nook and cranny of his little chubby body so that the radiologists have all of the information for his radiation next week, and then he will get another spinal tap with Chemo, AND THEN, an MRI....phew....that was a mouthful!! ANOTHER 3 beads please!! (if you don't know what that means, read the posting before this :) They also have to do another measuring test on a special machine for the radiologists that they are going to try and get done at the same time. If they cannot get it done in the morning, he will have to be sedated yet again around 2pm. And that means, no food still!! So please please pray that they can get ALL of the procedures done within that time frame and that he only has to go under anesthesia once tomorrow :) He is always so sad and cranky after these things and I hate for him to be out of order all day long :(
Please pray that his MRI comes out normal and that the radiologists are able to get all of the measurements that they need! Thank you for the prayers and I will update you tomorrow on how everything went!!
