Such great news today!!

Though it is too easy to say when things are going well, GOD IS GOOD! All the time! We went for a routine MRI today, as well as a routine neurosurgeon appointment. The MRI went smoothly. They allowed me to get in the MRI machine with Madi so that they did not have to sedate her. I rubber her little soft face and sang to her while they did what the call a "big bang MRI", which only takes about 5 minutes. It was a bit eery feeling to be crammed in such a small, enclosed space, but I was thankful to be there! Madi did great because she knew momma was right there with her the whole time. She wasn't a huge fan of the ear plugs or the fact that she could not move her arms, but she really did great! I got a little nervous for the appointment because Mary, Dr. Moss's nurse practitioner said she would look at the MRI and be back, but kept not coming back. I was starting to get worried, especially considering we are supposed to be on a plate today to head to disneyland. She said there is more fluid in the left side, just like there was before, but things looked good. The reason it took so long is because she called Dr. Shaffron and had him compare her old MRI to her current one. Things looked pretty much exactly the same. THANK YOU GOD!! Then she said the most amazing thing..... we will see you in 6 months! Now, for some people, 6 months might not sound like a big thing, but to us it is HUGE. We had a very rough start with shunt problems and within the first 2 months had spent about 1 month in the hospital. Those were some very rough times. For now, things look great, and I couldn't be more thankful. We're taking it one day at a time.
