Long Day...

As with all things Greyson...What were we so worried about? Grey did amazing!! I fed him last night around 9:30pm and the MRI didn't start until 11am and we barely even heard a peep! He was his laughing, smiling self all morning long. He got a bit antsy around 10ish but fell asleep. The MRI lasted about 2.5 hours and we were able to see him before he even woke up. I went in and said something to him and got a smile right away. We stayed in recovery for about 20 minutes and then went into our holding room (or whatever it's called) fed him, and 20 minutes later we were on our way home! We were at the hospital for about 7 hours total, so it was a pretty long day and we are VERY happy to have this first MRI behind us. His shunt was checked as soon as the MRI was finished and he hasn't shown any signs of something being off with that. He is such a little trooper and of course, all of the nurses just loved him! We are yet again, reminded how lucky we are to have been chosen to be his parents!!

Now the waiting for Friday begins, to be perfectly honest, we really aren't too worried about it. Grey is just doing so well, that we know whatever we are told, we can handle. Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers today! We will update again this weekend and let you know what we find out on Friday!

Love to all,
Leigh, Andy, and Grey

Grey is such a trooper! I had you guys on my mind today. Glad to hear all went well and even more glad to hear that you are at ease. What a blessing.
I got teary when I read how lucky you are to have been chosen to be his parents. It's really is such a special experience.
