Sitting here at Childrens' Memorial waiting for Wes to come out. It will be a long day, he will have a MRI of brain and spine, then head to CT for CT scan of his head and spine and extension/flexion CT, then up to the OR for a broncoscopy. He will be back for at least 2 1/2 hours. We met with Dr. Rastater, ENT, who is hopeful he will get some answer and a plan concerning his breathing and possibly continued aspiration pneumonia.
He was pretty calm until we walked into the pre-op area. There was a little boy screaming and that all to familiar "tired little tiger" gown. I was able to stay with until he was sedated...that seem to do little to comfort him when he saw the gas mask. Fortunately the gas works fast and he was sleeping peacefully when I left.
Wes loves this song. In the last week, he learned the entire loop of the song last week and sung it on our flight up.
