Charlotte's Journey Home

Just a Regular Kid, Sort Of

Still Waiting

It has been brought to my attention by my dear sister that I was remiss on Friday because I did not update the blog after we got home from the hospital.  The quick skinny: The MRI went fine. We were home by 12:30 or so. I slept for more than 3 hours. Charlotte played on her iPad for the same time. Her throat hurt, but she had no adverse reactions to the anesthesia.

She did have a major reaction to the IV port that was still in her arm. While it was not a needle, she had the same meltdown about taking it out that she had about her blood draw in November. Without going into the traumatic details, I will say that she delayed her own departure from the hospital by about 45 minutes and I was exhausted afterward.

Now we wait…the doctors conference tomorrow and we’ll have news this week.
