Ok folks, we are getting ready to take off for day 2 of scans. Yesterday went really well and Jack was very happy about only having to do the CT scans but not too thrilled about having to put an IV in. He put up a bit of a fight when it was time to hold his arm out, but once they started he didn’t even know it was happening. He did really well with the CT and picked out a prize after….a stuffed bat that he wants to take to clinic on Friday to scare the nurses. He thinks it is just so funny that he would do that!
We had to wait around for about a hour before he got the injection for the MIBG so we sat and ate some lunch at the cafeteria and visited with our favorite person from Child Life, Amanda. Jack is very shy now in front of all the people at the hospital that he used to be so outgoing with and I am not sure why. Maybe he feels like if he gets too close he will have to go back?? Not sure.
Anyhow, we go in this morning first to the orthopedic to see if we can take his boot off or at least see how his bone is healing from his attempt at flying. Hopefully he can take it off and get back to playing more outside because I know he misses it. After that we will be checking in and getting another IV done before his scan so Dr Maze can give him anesthesia. We saw Dr Maze yesterday…he is such a nice man. He tickled Jack and made him laugh, told him he loved him and just how cute he is. He is so good with him. Of course he asked me about my whole family that he knows because he really does care about everyone. The MIBG should only last about a hour or so and then we will be heading home and I will turn my ringer up as high as it will go and hold it close to me until Dr Eshun calls and tells us, “I have good news for you! You don’t have to worry…he is fine! It’s Jack afterall!”
Please keep the prayers coming!!
