MRI Scan

Today is B's MRI scan. This is one of the scariest days of my life. We go to the big children's hospital instead of our local hospital and head for the Neuroradiology department. B's isn't allowed any food, only water in the morning and that's it. He is going under general anaesthetic and I'm terrified. When they put him under he goes all floppy and looks more asleep then when he's asleep (he normally fidgets in his sleep). He looks dead to me and I burst into tears. I know he will be fine but I don't like seeing him like that. I'm so glad B's daddy is with me for comfort. I would never have got through this appointment on my own. We have to wait patiently whilst they take our sleeping prince off for the scan. It doesn't take too long but when they bring him back to ward he is still asleep and has difficulty waking up. It's such a relief when he does wake up and gets back to his normal cheeky self. Now we have to wait again for the results of the scan.
