the the doctor called yesterday with the test results.  he told me before that he wouldn’t have the EMG results yet, just MRI.  but, guess what?  he had both.

the EMG showed that his nerves are just fine.

the MRI showed that luke  has a smaller cerebellum.  the doctor thinks that is why his speech is delayed. 

he wants to see luke in jan/feb for a follow up.  (and of course would like to do more tests)

luke had an MRI and an EMG (electro myography) done today.  yes, they put him to sleep.  because of the anesthesia, he could not eat anything after 6 am or drink anything after 1o am.  we had to be at the hospital by 11 am to check in.

his MRI was scheduled at noon, and his EMG was scheduled at 1.  well, he didn’t get taken back til 12:45.   we got taken back to the recovery room around 2:30. 

jeff and i were given these when we checked in and luke got a bracelet.

when luke  was shown the mask that he would wear to put him to sleep, he was given a bear with his own mask.

jeff got to go back with luke while they put him out.  but, because i am pregnant, this is where i had to say goodbye.



in recovery…


luke was a good sport today. he woke up from the anesthesia really well.
