Rebekah Is In Scans...

...and mommy and daddy are up in the hospital Atrium waiting; like we have done SO many times before.

A really neat thing happened to us downstairs at the MRI check in. Rebekah got to go EARLY. They were waiting on us and asking us if we wanted to go early. We checked in, did vitals, put some owie cream on Rebekah's hand and gave her some relaxation medicine (Versed). After that started to take effect we put in an IV, gave her an initial dose of sleeping medicine and out she went. We now have 1 hour and a half or so wait while she does scans. Mommy went to the clinic to see if we can schedule our appointment to get results some time next week.

We brought Sarah and Katie with us and, before we checked in, we took and gave Katie a tour of the hospital and all the places to play. Katie is taking care of Sarah while we wait. Child life was putting on a music and arts seminar for the kids so they will probably take advantage of that and then join us for a bite to eat.

Pray for clear scans and minimal apprehension while we wait for scans.

Yesterday we met with the AC/Air Quality guy for putting stuff in at home. The company we are working with is specatcular and is doing a lot of work at low or no markup for us. They are going to not only be putting in air conditioning (a heat pump actually) but also a HEPA filter and now also an Ultra Violet germ killing system. The cost is significantly more than we expected but we will have to work on finding the funds for it. Already one very VERY gracious benefactor (for lack of a better term) has donated $500.00 towards the total.

Prayers for the way God provides the way to make everything work out. We know He will but are just not sure how.

Praying for clear scans and for His peace in this week of waiting for the results. Just read the post before this one and am praying for those families with little ones near the end of their earthly life....Praying with tears.

I shall pray for clear scans as well, and can understand your anxiety and fear so I'll pray (as Jodi is) for His peace while you wait.

Hope you're able to get the air conditioning you need so badly!
