2 MRI Week

Tomorrow, Scarlett will have her second MRI for the week.  It took a lot of negotiating between the doctors at both hospitals, but they came to an agreement that they each needed different kinds of scans, so we would do them both - with the promise to the neurosurgeon that the other hospital won't mess with her new shunt!  Today was a "quick scan" to check her shunt (all good - no changes needed).  No anesthesia, only 5 minutes.  Tomorrow is the scheduled tumor-monitoring scan, which takes much longer and will require an IV and sedation.  As always, we will have our fingers crossed that this scan is as uneventful as all the rest.

I am working on a big change for Scarlett that is taking a lot of my energy and time, but I can't wait to share in a few days!  It's the beginning of a new era here, and things are looking good!
