MRI day for Kaiella


First of all I have to say that I totally Love this picture of little Bella, it just really captures "her" filled with total joy! dimple and all :)

Today is the day that our baby Kaiella goes for an MRI. She has suffered from dizzy spells since she was just under a year old. She will be running and playing or sometimes just sitting nicely and she suddenly gets really worried and upset, falls down or puts her head down and tells us "spinning!!!" It is not her inner ears so the Doctor is being very thorough and doing the BIG tests. I have to say the EEG was NOT fun, they made us leave and she was horrified to be held down while these things got put all over her head, she didn't calm down until they let me come back in and be with her. Good news is that I am pretty sure that test was all normal and good or we would have been contacted by now. I am glad to know that we get to stay with her for this one , and she will be put under so she really won't see the big MRI machine. I have been preparing her as best I can, telling about the I.V. in her hand, and that she will have a little sleep while they take pictures of her head. It may be hard on Cam and I, I am glad that we will have each other, I just really hope she can feel peaceful about it all, and that the doctors and technicians handle it all with sensitivity for her.

I was hoping to ask those of you praying folks out there to say a little prayer for us today. We sure would appreciate that.

You and your family and especially little Kaiella (what a pretty name!) will be in my prayers. Having an MRI is such a big deal for adults, even more so for the little ones. I hope you find your answers too. It must be hard to know that something is not right, but not know exactly what that is! you are in God's hands!!!

First, I "discovered" your beautiful scrapbook pages awhile back and was enchanted! I've been visiting your blog ever since. When I learned that you were named CK Scrapper of the year, I was thrilled for you. You really deserve this honor and it is super that more scrappers out there will get to know you because of it. Warmest congrats and ENJOY it!!!!

Second, I am the "praying kind," and I will keep Kaiella (and you and Cam) in my prayers. This must be incredibly stressful. My heart goes out to you.

I'll definitely keep Kaiella and you and Cam in my thoughts and prayers today and over the next few days as you await the results.

CD, your family is in our prayers, with extras for Kaiella. It's heartbreaking and stressful when our children have to go through this. I hope it goes well and that what is determined is manageable. May you draw strength and comfort from all those who care and pray. From a former Winnipeg girl who knows that there're still lots of good docs there!

Prayers for your little one! I hope that all goes well and there is comfort for you as well as her!

I just said a little prayer for your family. Hoping that all goes well, I know hospitals are scary at this young age (and it will stick with them for a while unfortunately). Give as much love and cuddles when you can, to your little sweetie and to each other.

HUGS!!!

CD...I know exactly how you feel. My son, who is now 7 went through somthing very similiar. After being in a restful position he would get up and have no balance. He looked like it was drunk. This started when he was two. After the MRI, cat scan we found out it was the inner ear fluid, so they think. He had to have surgey four times, one of the times to remove the bone behind his right ear due to an infection in the bone. Which was a big cause of the ear problems. He now has tubes in his ears and has not had a infection for a long time. Thing is we still deal with the balance issue and it seems like no one can figure out why. At least I know we tested him for everything we could and narrowed it down to virtago (*not sure of the spelling). Hang in there and I am sure you will find the answers you need to deal with this. I remember when Weston had the MRI and had to be put to sleep and have an IV. I think is was worse on me then him. I am sorry to be so long in this message, but I thought it may be helpful. Good luck.
peace

CD - many wishes and smile for Kaiella from me!

My little one has a dodgy heart, and she has had several MRI's in her two years of life - she is due for another in a week or two - I hate the fact that she has to be put under' for it - but it is the best way! She also has regular ECG, and echocardiograms - it is so hard to keep a just two year old still and happy through them. She must be getting used to it - because she fell asleep in my lap last week! Gorgeous.

Big hugs to you and your little tresure - al will be well:)
