THE RESULTS ARE IN.....

FINALLY!!!

Maddy went in to Children's hospital yesterday for a cat scan...

Her "blanket" only stays at home on her bed...but today she felt the overwhelming need to bring it along...(she never clung to a blanket outside of bedtime even as a baby...it always was tucked under her pillow at home)
...she was sooo scared...the nurses were just FANTASTIC! They told her that the used magic sprinkles and turned it into magic lotion to put on her arm where the IV would go and it would make it not hurt...she was doubtful...


Nurse Kelly brought in some fun things to distract her...and she also brought in pictures of the xray room to show her what it looked like before she went in...

when she got into the xray room they put a teddy bear on the bed and showed them just what they needed her to do with the bear...



and pretty soon it was all over...THE MAGIC LOTION WORKED PERFECTLY...and because she was a brave soul she got TWO treats! an xray sticker and a glow in the dark anklet!



the cat scan showed it was an enlarged lymph node and just something we have to watch...
what a wild ride...the tides are turning sweeties..the tides are turning...

BIG GIANT SIGH OF RELIEF AND BIGGER HUGZ TO YOU ALL!!!
