I had almost decided to close up shop, I never get over to my computer to blog any more. I’m too busy living life right now. Which is good because it means I’m present in the moment. It also is bad because next month I won’t remember what we were doing this month.
On June 24th (one week ago) Moose had an MRI. He had his last bottle at 4 am and could have water and apple juice until 11am. Between 9-11 am he could only have a total of eight ounces. After 11, nada – zilch – nothing. My boy likes to eat. I knew this would be a major issue.
As you can see, he handled it much better than expected. Although they didn’t take him back for the MRI until almost 4 pm.
I really felt God all day. He took care of things. I was anxious about giving Moose the gas and it turned out I didn’t have to. He wouldn’t take it from me so I left the room while he was still smiling.
The procedure went really well.
The recovery rooms filled up before he was out so they decided to move him upstairs to another recovery room. I was sent on up to the waiting room to wait for him. They told me how to get there but not the name of the waiting room. Turns out I was being sent to the waiting room for parents whose children are in surgery having amputations. If that isn’t God giving me perspective on a silver platter, I don’t know what is.
Moose was sick in the car on the way home. Then had diarrhea for days while the anesthesia worked out of his system. Now he is cutting another tooth so it has been a rough week. Not much sleep.
Thursday we found out that Moose has a bleed on the left side of his brain and we are being sent to a neurologist at Children’s Hospital here in Little Rock (where he had the MRI). So, we wait. And we snuggle.
And we don’t care that he isn’t sleeping much, I’ve held him. I’ve been reminding myself to be thankful. We have many, many things to be thankful for. We have also cried. Moose can’t tell us if he is pain or it is just his tooth. Is in an old injury? If so, how? Is it new? Does it hurt? We have many questions. Primarily what will the course of action, if any, be?
Anyways, we can use good thoughts, vibes, prayers, etc. So, if anyone is reading this and can send any our way, we are grateful. Thank you.
