MRI AND ARM RESULTS

Today was the day for Kaidence's MRI. We weren't too sure that we would make the appointment anyhow because Kaidence has been sick again since Saturday with fevers, coughs and vomiting. However, they wanted it done anyhow. It turns out that she has to go back in to place a stint in her LPA. I am bummed that we just didn't do it on Thursday, but it is better to know exactly what we are looking at and if it's was really needed. Dr. Gray said that it is a pretty tricky place to place a stint, because of where the kink is and its angle. It turns out that her right lung gets about 70% of the blood and the left lung is getting about 30%. This next time I am not so sure that Kaidence will be as cooperative. She knows what's going on and is a little unhappy about her bruised groin. We are hoping to do that around the 2nd week in December. I am nervous all over again.

Also, I am soooooo HAPPY to report that Kaidence's arm has regained all of its function. I am so relieved. What a blessing. Thursday night when her arm was not working at all she went to get off the couch but fell face first and got a bloody nose because her arm could not hold her. It would drag as she walked, but now looks as though nothing has happened.

Anyhow, that is our update. Thanks for checking in on our little family and Miss K.
