So Big!

5 Nov

Relief! Today Kaeden had his cat scan. The Neurosurgeon said that the scan looks good and he isn’t inclined to do surgery at this time. He wants to keep a close eye on him for now and go from there. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Huge sigh of Relief!

During his cat scan Kaeden was AMAZING! They saw how active Kaeden is and called in an anesthesiologist to sedate him. We starved him (poor guy) and came in early. I stressed over which one of us would have to stand there and comfort him while they put him under (last time I BAWLED!) BUT, our big boy held still. He layed on the table in a velcro burrito and focused on the stickers for 30 whole seconds…3 seperate times! Each time he continued wiggling his feet, but that was all. And as soon as they said he could, he squirmed as much as the bindings would let him. But, he held still when he had to!

The cat scan machine literally looks like a giant donut, Homer worthy. Although the below picture is not the one at Seattle Children’s, this is pretty much what it looked like 🙂


 Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes. We were so nervous and it turned out to be a piece of cake donut.

Ps. Kaeden has not had both his seasonal flu and H1N1 vaccinations. And his Nephrology (Kidney) appointment is rescheduled for December 1.
