MRI Day! I talked with Hailey over and over again how it all works. How she'll fall asleep and then a team of doctors and nurses will take her into a room, where I can't go into but will stay close by, where she'll have her brain and ears photographed. She felt good about it all.......UNTIL she heard a kid down the hall scream bloody murder. Then she was nervous.
So I tried my best to calm her down. To talk her nerves down by joking how she's such a lucky girl to be wearing her PJ's. :-)
But then 2 nurses came in and then the tears starting coming. She realized that the screams where from kids getting their IV's. So I did the best thing I could do..... cry with her. I held her, talked to her but I still shred a few tears. I think hearing your kid cry is the worse sound in the world.
But after the nurses left and we had a moment alone she felt alittle better. One nurse came in and let her pick a prize from their treasure box. She picked a make up set that went well with her new bumble bee accessories.
Not even an IV can stop my daughter from beautifying herself. :-)
So after waiting a couple of hours she was giving the medication that knocked her out. It was so sweet. I held her hand and right before she fell asleep she told me "Momma I love you" and before I could reply with an "I love you" she was asleep. But both the nurse and I were teary eye from her sweet gesture.
After her MRI she slept for an hour, ate a Popsicle and then we were able to come home. The results were sent to her specialist. So we waited :-(
But we got the call from the specialist that she has a small cochlear.

She was born with it and there's nothing that caused it. And after a few web searches here's what I learned:
