Minor update on The Little One

Owen had his follow-up MRI yesterday afternoon. It went really well for him. Not as well for me, but no biggie. I sort of passed out watching them put in the IV. It was a combination of being mildly squeamish (although IV’s don’t usually bother me), overtired, and undernourished. Owen couldn’t eat for 6 hours before the sedation, and I didn’t want to eat in front of him, so I skipped lunch (I was planning to eat breakfast with the kids, but got busy getting everyone out the door on time and ran out of time).

A few minutes in a chair and I was fine, and I had a lovely lunch in the hospial cafeteria while Owen was getting scanned. It all works out.  *sheepish grin*

    Sorry to hear about the Sugar Fiasco with Reed. That must have been a huge mess!

    I was wondering what they are looking for in Owen’s MRI scan? Are they checking to see if any of the tumor has returned or grown back? How has Owen been doing? Is his language still getting better?

    Reed is so cute in your pictures. He has a wonderful smile :o)

    It’s standard procedure after this operation to verify that everything is where it should be and there is no pressure building up. His language is HUGE! He is talking light years ahead of where he was 3 months ago! And he’s hillarious now. Can’t beat that. =]
