Let the fun begin..
After three hours of playing phone tag with the pediatrician, neurosurgeon, and hospital registration office, Gabriel finally has an appointment to have his mri's done at the local hospital. Next Wednesday he'll be going in for an iv and the procedures. It should take between one and a half and two and a half hours and they are checking for a few things: Shunt placement and function, spinal cord appearance, and making sure that his spinal cord has not tethered to his spine where his myelomeningocele is located. (which can happen to children who have a repaired spinal cord) He'll be having the mri's on Wednesday, he'll be getting fit for new orthodics braces on Thursday afternoon, and then Thursday evening, we'll be heading to Michigan for a little R&R with the Michigan grandparents! A busy week for sure, please keep Gabe in your thoughts :)
