MRI's and the lack thereof.

Michael was scheduled for an MRI yesterday. We spoke with the nurse at 6:30 in the morning and asked if we should continue to withhold feeding him as we were concerned about him being hydrated. We had turned off his feed at 11. We explained he was on a feeding tube and received formula by g-tube. She said to go ahead and turn on his feed until 9:30. I stopped the feed (it was only for 2 hours) at 9... just to be on the safe side.

Well, we got checked in, registered, etc. He was weighed. He had the hospital band on. The anasthesiologist asked questions about his cleft. Right before he got his IV they asked about feeding/drinking...

Well, the nurse told Mike WRONG. He's not supposed to have formula for 6 hours prior the MRI. She meant to say he could have Pedialyte until 9:30. So we had to cancel and reschedule. It was very frustrating. It's hard to secure child care for a lengthy appt. like this one and in addition to drive from here to CHKD... drop off kids, etc. I trust though that the Lord has His reasons. They offered to give him his MRI at 3 but I knew I was supposed to be almost done with the appt. by then so I could pick up the kids (it's a 4 hour appt. because of the sedation.)

To make a long story short...Michael's MRI has been re-scheduled for June.

Just when you think it can't get any worse! I'm so sorry, friend. I can only imagine how frustrating that must be. I've been praying for you this week... as I look at my calendar and see Michael's surgery. This doesn't affect his surgery... does it? Love you dearly... let me know how I can pray for you SPECIFICALLY on thurs.

Pray for peace! I need it. Pray that God would comfort Michael even though he can't put anything in his mouth (his main source of comfort).

XOXO,

JL

coffee also goes along way too.....
