Day 2

Today we went into the hospital for a bone scan. It was a harder day than yesterday at the hospital, but a much easier day afterward. Paige couldn't eat this morning and that was tough - she whined and whined for food or drink and I felt awful that I couldn't give it to her. I had to sneak Piper food and drink when Paige wasn't looking, so she didn't get a lot to eat either. When we got to the hospital they started another IV - this time in her foot. Then they gave her some radioactive stuff that makes her bones glow when they x-ray them. We had to wait for 1 1/2 hours before they could do the scan - and yes, by then it was like 12:00 p.m. and still no food or drink for Paige. Luckily Primary Children's Hospital has a pretty fun play room.
They let us stay in the room while they did the bone scan (Piper had fallen asleep by this time) and explained what they were looking for as they went along. The scan looked great to them, but they still needed to have a radiologist check it to make sure as well as our doctor. We didn't hear anything official from the doctor today, but the hospital called to give us a time for surgery tomorrow - 1:00 p.m. (and yes - Paige is going to be hungry and thirsty tomorrow as well). We are still hoping to meet with the doctor before surgery to get more questions answered and will report more about that tomorrow.
I mentioned that Paige was a lot happier today after we got home than she was yesterday - they gave her a different sedation drug and she was walking 1 hour after we got home and back to her pleasant little self.
Thank you to all that joined us for the fast on Sunday. We are seeing miracles daily!!!

Wow, as a mother of a 22 month old, I can only imagine the impossibility of denying my child food for half a day. And you have to do it tomorrow too. Wow. Good luck, I will certainly pray for you guys tonight.
