Daniel's MRI

Is scheduled for 2pm tomorrow (Monday October 27).

My wonderful sister and niece are here to be with the kids which is great fun!  They have had a blast playing together and I'm thankful that they were able to come! 

Here's a little of what I know - and there is still a lot that I don't know.

Anything that Daniel is going to eat must be eaten prior to 8am.  No food after that.  He can have clear liquids (apple juice, sprite - not sure what else may be included?) until noon.  Our appt is at 2pm.  He will be sedated for this.  I'm not sure what method they will use to sedate him.  He has sensory issues wihch may limit some of our choices.  I'm not sure if he'll drink something, but the other option is an IV which I don't think he'd be fond of either.  I'd love prayers for this.

The scan itself should take about 40 minutes.  We are not expecting to hear anything tomorrow.  That will be hard!!!  I'm hoping we will hear something on Tuesday and definitely by Wednesday at the latest.  We'll know more tomorrow.

Please join us in praying for clear, good results. 

Also, I don't know if this will clear up any of my questions about the shape of Daniel's head (it's shaped differently than normal and on the larger side), but I'm planning to ask.  I'm wondering (though not too much) if this may be part of the problem. 

Thank you for praying with us.



PS.  Roger took some pics with his cell phone.  We should have brought a regular camera.  If they turn out, I'll post some.
