PTL

Praise The Lord

so, we admitted c-dub to children's hospital yesterday morning at 8 am...they said they wanted to monitor her since she was 5 weeks early. her mri was scheduled for this afternoon at 1pm, however she was able to get in a few hours early due to a no-show! yay for us, stinky for the other guy. we were told that the mri would take approximately 1.5 hours since she was getting a head mri and a full spine mri - 3 hours later they finally gave her back to us. ps - it was so hard to give her up (i'm pretty sure i was fighting back tears...) anywho, it was so strange seeing her come out of her anesthesia! she was groggy and when she would breathe it sounded raspy, but the nurse said it was saliva that had pooled in her mouth/throat and she just needed to make herself swallow. she hadn't eaten since 3:30 am, so she was pretty hungry, but due to her extreme sleepiness it was almost as if she couldn't make herself to swallow to eat SO she didn't...she just laid in her bed while she became a little more alert.

shortly after we had her safe and sound in her bed, the hospitalist came in and told us the results of her mri...

THE SAC OF FLUID IS GONE FROM HER SPINE AND HER SKULL LOOKS COMPLETELY NORMAL! SHE'S FINALLY A HAPPY, HEALTHY 3 MONTH OLD! WOO HOO!

thank you so much for all of your encouraging thoughts, words, and especially your prayers
