Prelim Results All Clear!

Preliminary results of the MRI and spinal fluid is all clear, nothing questionable. I can almost breathe now. We have to remember it is preliminary, but this is very good.

Tests Done

Liam got into his MRI a bit late today, so we are finished much later than previous days. Liam had a full head and neck MRI with contrast, lumbar puncture and bloodwork, all while under anesthetic. They told us everything went smoothly.

Leaving the hospital at 4:30, after Liam woke up from his anesthetic meant the hospital was a ghost town! Apparently we'll be waiting until tomorrow or the next day for results.

Liam's biggest issue is that he said the band aids over the IV sites hurt. No headache or nausea so far. It looks like they had some troubles getting his IV, both hands and his foot are poked.

Liam is drowsy, but happy and playing and wants to get a Happy Meal on the way home.

6 Month Post Treatment Scans

It has been a great summer for us, lots of fun in the sun in the Okanagan. Liam starts Kindergarten in a few weeks!

Unfortunately next week Liam has his MRI, lumbar puncture and bloodwork. Nothing like having that looming to take away from everything else. At least Liam doesn't worry about it, he still doesn't understand or ask why he has to go for sleepy medicine to get "pictures of his head" taken. We just hope that the lumbar puncture goes better than last time. He had about 24 hours of headache and vomiting, no fun.

Looking forward to having the tests over with.
