I had talked up the "brain picture" with Bates who was less than pleased to be having this done again. But he was up for some serious one on one mommy time.
I'm not sure who this huge child is in this hospital bed, but what happened to my baby. Speaking of big boys, when it was time to go back, he did not even flinch. Last MRI it involved a LOT of tears, and having to take the "happy juice"- it was bad.
But this time, he walked holding the nurses hands. With laugher rolling down the halls since I threatened to pinch his little buns peeking out of that night gown.
I walked around and decided I would enjoy the two hour quiet time by simply sitting outside in the garden all.by.my.self. And I happened upon a fish pond that had GIANT fish that would swim right over to the edge as soon as you would walk over. They were wanting to be fed!
And the other two, home with daddy. He had to run some errands and I get the "what is Nell supposed to wear text" Bless him. He picked out her dress, did some piggies, and "matching" bows. Way to go, girl dad!
Right at an hour I was allowed to go back and be with my boy as he woke from anesthesia. Some sprite and a few cheetos down him and we were allowed to go home! We headed to the car and then a pit stop at Trader Joes for some yummy goodies.
Bates asked to go on a special lunch date, which I was happy to do. He was laying in the booth, smiling at me for this picture, and then as soon as our food came.... he threw up everywhere.
I can check that off my Motherhood List: child throws up in restaurant.
We expected the results to come Monday or Tuesday, but when my phone rang on Sunday and it was the Pediatrician's Office, I didn't think that was good news.
Our favorite nurse was on the other end. She said the results of Bates' MRI were faxed over this morning and Dr. Butler was on call, so she went ahead and reviewed them and wanted her to call and let us know.....
That there was NO CHANGE in the lesion.
This is awesome awesome news and I'm so thankful we didn't have to spend three days worrying. They still aren't sure what the lesion is, but no change is awesome. We go to see the neurologist in October, but I need to reschedule that, but no rush to get in, no worries, and probably just some basic routine follow ups needed.
