Waiting is the Hardest Part

Yesterday Dane had his MRI at Herman Hospital. Kevin wasn't able to get off work, so my mom came in the night before and reserved a hotel room close to the medical center. Dane and I slept down there since we had to be at the hospital at 5:30 in the morning. 4:45 came really early Tuesday morning when our alarm went off. We arrived, did some paper work for about 15 minutes and then waited until close to 8:00before they were ready for Dane. It always makes me annoyed when you have to get to a place so early, and then sit and wait for hours. Anyway, we finally headed over to where they put Dane asleep, and I had to watch them do it this time. Not a fun experience. Dane could sense something was going to happen the minute that we walked into the room, and his whole demeanor changed. It was hard to watch them putting him to sleep, but it only lasted a couple minutes and then he was out.

The MRI took a couple hours, and from what they told us it went ok. We got to go into the recovery room pretty soon after they were done with the exam, and Dane was still sleeping. The anesthesia didn't settle well this time around. Not sure if it was a different type or what. But, Dane ended up throwing up on the way home all over in the back seat of Kevin's truck. Then he threw up 3 other times yesterday once we got home. Poor little guy. He seems to be feeling better today though. We don't know yet the results of the exam. I'm hoping that we will here something today or tomorrow. I'm just hoping that the results show his hip looks good besides the scar tissue that we already know about. So, we wait...

At least it's behind him now. Poor little guy. I hate it when Kaitlyn isn't feeling well. All our two have been through... well, I'll be glad when it's all over.
