Brayden August 31, 2007

Today was successful. Brayden finally had his MRI, to review his brain, at Children's Hospital in Washington, DC. We were one of the first ones in this morning. We got to the hospital at 6:30 and left around lunchtime. Brayden did extremely well. He was not able to eat anything for several hours before the MRI. The MRI was about 1 hour and it took him about 90 minutes to wake up from the anesthesia. When he woke up, he was ready to eat and did so successfully. He seems to have handled the whole morning quite well.
We are now waiting on the results. We put a call into his neurologist to let her know that the MRI was completed. She should be able to view the images from whatever location she may be and call us to give a quick run down. Although we do not know when we may hear from the neurologist, it might not be until next week. Then in a couple of weeks we have an office visit to go through the images and all of the details. We are on another wait and see path, for now.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone for their prayers and support. Today went as smoothly as it could possibly go. Brayden is home and doing quite well, as if this morning never happened. Jeremy and I are still recovering. Carter and Luke have been spending time with both sets of grandparents and from what we hear, they are milking it for all that it is worth.

We will let you know when we have some sort of results.

With much love and thanks,
Carrie Jenkins
