CT scan update and a little bit of fun.

I woke Alyana up two hours earlier than she usually wakes up, like I was suppose to.

Only gave her juice, no food or formula, like I was suppose to.

Luke and I dropped the kids off and got to the X-ray department 15 minutes early, like we were suppose to.

Then we were asked if we wanted to have her sedated or try and feed her a bottle of formula and try to put her to sleep myself since her head had to stay perfectly still.

Well, sedating my 6 month old didn't sound too appealing so I opted for just feeding her and putting her to sleep myself.

Worked like a charm. Until I layed her on the little machine... bed, thingy, and she woke up. Bright eyed and bushy tailed, she was ready to just look around.

But she was also very calm and allowed herself to be wrapped up tight as the techs decided that since she was so calm they would try and take the images with her awake.

She was perfect... until the last second, she moved and messed up the last image. After a few minutes considering, the techs decided to try one more time.

This time she held perfectly still and they got what they needed.

But the double dose of radiation appeared to have made her a little nauseous as she spit up a couple times afterwards.

The techs showed us the little gaps between the plates that the radiologist would be looking at and it appeared to all of us that you could still see a gap and that they have not sealed. But, I guess that is what the Radiologist gets paid a chunk of money to decide. They will also be checking a few other things to make sure everything is and will be okay. We were told we would hear back sometime on Monday most likely.

Well, that's about all the news I've got as far as that goes. But in other news, yesterday the kids enjoyed a bit of the almost over summer fun at the library. There wasn't much to do at this event but, well, I guess that's the joy of being a kid. The love to do ANYTHING.

Although I'm not so sure the boys liked all the competition that surrounded the ball activity. I think if the kids had been smaller they would have just charged in and taken over. (balls have a strange way of turning my sweet boys into vicious wolves) But, there were too many big kids, so they surrendered and mostly just watched.


I think getting her face painted (or in this case, colored) is one of Savannah's favorite things to do at activities like this.


Joseph enjoyed getting a cheek colored as well.


Jacob wanted nothing to do with it.



But he did try his hand at the "balance beam". He watched.

And decided it was doable.
Sort of.

I'm not exactly sure what this was all about. The kids dressed up then ran while someone counted.



Like I said, not sure what the point was but Savannah and Joseph sure liked doing it and it made for cute pictures!




Jacob wanted nothing to do with it.

Oh well, the kids still had fun.
I will let you know when we hear back about Alayna's scan.

4 super cool people speak:

I'm glad Alayna was calm for most of it. That's a relief you didn't have to sedate her.

My guess with the library event is that if they went with the national children's SRP theme of Be Creative, the library was trying to, um, be creative in the activities. Random, yes, but definitely cute.

I'm so glad that they didn't have to sedate her - that's terrifying in a child so young.

It's good to hear that things are looking more like it will be a helmet and less like surgery.
