We have a schedule
It took some time, but we have the schedule for the 3-month tests. Wednesday at 8:20 a.m. is his CT Scan with the icky contrast needing to be consumed by 7:20 a.m. Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. is the injection of the radioactive dye in preparation for the MIBG Scan. The MIBG Scan is Thursday at 9:30 a.m. Friday a.m. bright and early is the bone marrow tests. Here’s the clincher…due a scheduling mix-up, he’ll be doing the scans without anesthesia for the first time. I’m not quite sure how this is going to happen with Mr. Curiosity especially considering how important it is to stay perfectly still and how hard Liam has being anything less than in perpetual motion. The challenging thing is that he’s going through a particularly active time. He is literally going nonstop as he feels stronger and better every day. He has energy he hasn’t had in at least 18 months. The world literally is his oyster and sometimes he just is overwhelmed at all the options in front of him. He might be able to do the CT Scan which is relatively short…but the MIBG is almost two hours long. Oh goodness. How quickly can we teach him meditation?
