The MRI went well, it was a tear free day.
When Sarah used to get sedated it was terrible. They put a cream on her IV site to numb the area but it never seemed to help. I can't tell you the number of times they had to papoose her to start her IV.....terrible to watch. Then she always threw up afterwards. The last MRI she had she developed an allergy to the contrast and turned red all over. Sarah is due for a MRI of her optic glioma but we all seem to be stalling on it.
With Larissa they used a spray that froze the area and a lot of distraction. She didn't seem to mind the IV at all. We were so thankful.
They gave her a little doll for her bravery.
After her MRI was competed she took a little time to wake up. She did have a seizure while waking up. Larissa ate her cookies and drank her juice with no nausea so they took out her IV and we were free to go......to McDonald's.
My biggest lesson learned is to change the time if we ever have to do this again. She had a 12:30 appointment and we didn't leave until 5 pm so she was very hungry. Definitely need to get the earliest appointment time possible.
Now we wait for her follow up appointment on August 24th to get the results.
