Little Red had her MRI last week. The day after, our pediatrician called and left a message during a rare nap time where I had turned my phone onto silent! Isn’t that always the way? Anywho, he briefly told us two things…
Her brain looks totally normal.”
Who’d have thought it, hey? A child of mine? Hahaha! I kid, I kid! All of my children are gonna’ be really clever and totally smort. We can already tell. Hang on a moment, Little Man is just trying to eat a cracker with a fork.
Where was I? Oh yeah, seriously, we have been warned that an MRI doesn’t always show Cerebral Palsy, but we’re pleased that there isn’t any other nastiness going on up there that we were unaware of.
The Hemi and Butterfly vertebrae don’t impinge on the spinal cord.”
I’d love to explain this in more detail but, at the time of writing this, all I really understand is that it’s good news.
MRI RESULTS PART II
We have an appointment scheduled with the pediatrician later this week for a more in-depth discussion about LR’s MRI results. We’re concerned about her ribs being affected by the scoliosis, and her right foot, mainly.
While we have been concentrating on those two major issues the spasticity in left leg/foot has kind of been put on the back burner. So we plan to bring up all of her ailments in the hope of piecing together the jigsaw in some way.
As I’ve mentioned before, Hubby and I have done our own research. Michael has found a rare syndrome that seems to fit quite well, so he’d like to talk about it. But, again, I’m just keeping an open mind. It sounds like it could be an extremely challenging condition and that really frightens me.
I think I can speak for both of us when I say that we want closure but we’re also pretty scared to know too.
