Going to Tysons MRI today OT (we made up) update at bottom

Hey gals just trying to pass time and calm my nerves. My little guy has his mri today. I really hope they can figure out why he is having these seizures but at the same time I don't want them to find anything bad. They have to put him to sleep which stinks cause that means he can't eat all day. I would normally not eat with him but I am nursing damien so now I am trying to figure out what to do. I for sure won't eat in frount of him if I do eat at all. I feel so bad. He said I hate the DR, he wants to starve me. He's only 4 so I tried my best to explain to him why he can't eat. He can have popsicles though which we have but he wanted the cool spiderman ones so he went with grandma to the store to get them. I hope that cheers him up. To make things worse last night was trick or treat so he also can't have any candy. Well sorry this is so long just worried a little.

Thanks girls for all of your support. Tyson did okay but we have to wait till Wed for results so crossing my fingers. He was so happy when we were done that he could eat. We told him he could go anywhere he wanted and he picked McDonalds. He ordered 3 different things and an icecream cone so he was happy to say the least.

Now the bad part, (not about Tyson) so we were there at the MRI and only me or dh could go in cause I had to bring Damien. Well, Damien screams with anyone but me so DH had to go with Tyson:( I got to be with for everything up until the point where he went into the mri room. Besides, dh sais he is going to be with Tyson no matter what. So I had to leave Tyson and wait in the waiting room. I was sitting there almost in tears cause I could not be there for my baby when dh walks in. I say right away whats the matter! He sais nothing Tyson is sleeping and he sits down. I am nursing Damien at the time(we had a private room) so I say who cares if he is sleeping go be with him! He finally sais " if you really want to know it was too hard for me to see him like that. I was so upset. Even if it was hard what if Tyson would have woken up. There I was knowing I could not leave damien cause he would scream and Tyson was in the mri alone. Ugh I could still cry just thinking about it. For those of you who never had an MRI for a child they do put you to sleep but then they have to strap you down. I don't know what do you all think would you have been mad or am I over reacting? I guess I just feel bad cause I should have been in there. Oh well I just hope everything goes well. Thanks for reading Tia

I'm so sorry. I hope the MRI helps them figure this out. He has had multiple seizures? That is sad and I'm sure very tough on all of you.

let us know how it goes. I know how hard it is. Jordan had to have two MRIs when she was 2. I was pregnant and couldn't even go in with her. Sad anyhow, I'm thinking of you, hope they can figure out the seizures.

Tia, I'm so sorry you guys are going through this. I had to do the same thing when I was nine to find out if I had epilepsy so I definitely can feel for tyson. You guys are in my thoughts and prayers.

our thoughts and prayers are with you tialee. Hope they can give you more information from the results of this test but also hoping that it is nothing bad. So sorry your lo thinks the dr hates him. i guess it's just a 4 year old's way of making sense of all this.
hopefully the spiderman popsicles will cheer him up.

please kup

KUP with the results, it would be really scary as a mommy (and kid!) going thru that!

Just think, it's overwith! I hope you get some answers. Poor Tyson to not be able to eat and think the doctor hates him. But I'm sure McDonald's, ice cream, and halloween candy made up for it and he won't even remember it. kup!

that had to be tough! I have no experience with kids and MRI's, but I'm sure he'll be over it much quicker than momma will. KUP ok?

Poor Tyson!

I hope those popsicles and McDonalds made life a little better for him!

KUP on the results. Hope it's a not-too-anxious wait.

Oh man. Never had to strap down for an MRI. But strapping down for blood tests and ultrasound breaks your heart. This had to be worse. hugs

I hope you get some "good" answers! That's a hard situation. I can see both sides of yours and dh's story, so I can't give my verdict.

sounds like he bounced right back from it. really, it's harder for the parents. anyhow, they have to strap them down so that they don't move. better to strap down than to have to repeat the whole thing because they moved. my DH had to be the one in with Jordan for her MRIs, and I know it was hard for him (I've watched my kids put under for their tube surgeries and my son's tonsilectomy, so it really is hard to watch it happen but then they're out so quick). anyhow, how was Tyson when he woke up? My son had a bad reaction to the anthesthia and cried hysterically for over 30 minutes (one of the worst reactions they had seen in the recovery room). I'm guessing Tyson was fine when he woke up or you would have told us about it.

please let us know what you find out tomorrow.

:bigarmhug: It is much harder on the parents. They had this horrible looking machine to hold Ruthie in when she was a baby for an x-ray. I make Randall be in there b/c I can't watch. I am glad to hear he reacted okay though. What a sweet mom to treat him to anything he wanted!

OH tia it is so hard on the parents when things like this are going on with our kids. I am so glad that he did so well with the MRI and then he got his reward. I will pray for you guys and I hope that you get some answers this time around. Continue to stay strong. I know it is hard at times but you are strong, never forget that.

Thanks Girls both for posting your own situations and to Sadie for posting how it was also hard for you to watch. I guess everyone deals with it different. I know dh loves Tyson so much that all of this hurts him. I guess if i did not have damien and he said he could not watch or go in with me I would not have thought anything of it or been mad at all. I think I was more upset feeling I was picking one child over another and kinda took it out on dh. I told him I was sorry and he said the same and we both talked about what we were going through and why. He also played with my hair till I fell asleep last night and made me my coffee this morning just how I like it. He usually laughs at how I make my coffee cause I put only so much milk and some hot coco and sometimes carmel- Great for losing weight lol -Well today he brings it to me and I think it's just cream and sugar but no he made it how I do. Anyways, last night Tyson said OH I can eat now I thought I could never eat again. No wonder he was so mad at that Dr. Maybe next time I should say you can't eat till later. Poor guy. Well I will fill you all in tomorrow hopefully with an answer.

Almost forgot- He came out good but Gwen I know what you are talking about cause Jasmin came out once in that screaming crying rage. Scary huh?

yes, the screaming is pretty scary. it's so hard to watch our kids go through this. Jordan was hospitalized for 10 days at 22 months (the MRI showed an infection in her spine). seeing the really sick kids in the children's hospital gave me a completely different perspective, and I'm so thankful that I don't have a child who has to live in the hospital. anyhow, I'm glad that Tyson is okay and that he's being funny about being able to eat again. Wink gotta love their take on things.

I'm glad it is over! I love that he ordered all that food at McDonalds! Smile

I'm sorry about the situation with DH. Like you, I would have felt furious and torn as well. It sounds like you feel better about it now, but I do understand.
