And we are home!

Thanks for all of the prayers (you know how much we covet those :)).  The drive went amazingly well, though the shunt series and cat-scan, not so much.  The results were great, but Madi was NOT happy to have them done.  I held her hand and sang to her as I wiped her tears and told her I promised it wouldn't hurt, but it didn't make a difference.  Big scary machines are just not on her top 10 list this year.  We both survived, though, and Dr. Moss said everything looks great!  There are no blood clots or areas he is concerned about, and though there is more fluid on the right hand side, he is not worried.  It was there the last 2 times they checked too.  I told him next time I was not going to come right before a Disneyland trip we had planned, like we've done the last two times, because I always get nervous we'll have to be admitted in to the hospital and miss the trip.  We always have a plan of how David and Conner will go and we will meet up afterwards if anything isn't right, blah blah blah.  Anyhow, I brought Madi's wheelchair and she had a ton of fun showing off.  She did turns and went forwards and backwards and tried not to smile when everyone said they were amazed at how great she was doing.  She got told she was beautiful about 200 times, and that she was smart about another 200 or so, and she enjoyed every second of it!  When she would wheel past someone new, she would go really slow until they said something to her about how cute she was or how great she was doing.  Then she would smile and zoom off to the next person.  No one believed that she was not going to be two until next month and all the nurses said they have never seen someone so young move around like that.  We already know she is amazing, of course, but it was fun watching how excited she got when someone else told her (she's used to hearing it from us ;)).  I'll be back later with a few photos.

So glad it went well even if she was a bit scared, I'm sure having Mommy there made it much much better. She truly is a very beautiful spirit and you have every right to be proud of her!
