|This is not all that I got out of one apple. This is just what I thought John would eat in one serving|
The neurologist we saw, Dr. B, who is the head of Ped's Neuro, agreed that there is some weakness and that we need to check out what's going on in John's brain. He scheduled us for an MRI for a month later. It is an hour long procedure in which John would have to be perfectly still... John is 18 months old.... meaning he would require sedation.
We were scheduled for 12:30 and since John was being sedated he couldn't have anything to eat after 7:30am. So we go in there, me stressed, John hungry. They put some numbing cream on his foot and arm where they planned on putting the IV. They chose his arm and put it in. He screamed until he threw up. I held him and he fell asleep while we waited for them to take him to get the MRI done. They had not given him any medication at this point. He just fell asleep, I suppose, from exhaustion from crying and not eating.
