Jarrett's getting another MRI
Thu, 05-11-2006 - 3:35pm

I finally got ahold of the neurologist yesterday and apparently he had e-mailed me back, but for some reason I didn't get it!!! So we're off the Trileptal and he agreed with this new spina bifida finding he needs an MRI with contrast. I'm glad I drove all over heck last summer and paid $8000 for nothing!!! So May 30th we go. Of coarse he has to be put to sleep again. No versad this time though!! I'm not having a screaming kid all day again. They debated sending him to the neurosurgeon after, but we decided to see the neurologst again and we'll go from there. I've been lurking, but we;ve all been sick or I've been working!! Hopefully I'm around more.

They sure know how to keep you busy, don't they? I really hope this new MRI gets you somewhere and you're not getting so much hassle.

GL and keep us posted!

Sorry to hear you've all been under the weather.
