Ben's MRI

It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. He actually slept until after 7! We were able to get him up and just go out the door almost. We did have some last minute changes because they decided to do an ultrasound instead of MRI of hi kidneys becuase that would add 30-45 more minutes to the MRI and would mean he would do an iv instead of oral sedation. We were able to give him his meds, he actually had to take the full amount he could so we could get him asleep. Spence carried him into the room, we were able to stay in the room the whole time. I carried him back to our room. he started to wake up and was so ill during the ultrasound. Spence was able to get him back to sleep and he took about another 30 minute nap. We woke him up instead of letting him wake up on his own because by this time it was already after 11 and we had been there since 7:30. He woke up MUCH better this time, ate a whole banana and we were able to come home. He was very frustrated at home because he couldn't walk. He just kept falling over. We did lunch, and put him back down for a nap. When he woke up he was in a bit better mood. We did an early dinner and bath and he was down for the night by 6:15. I am hoping that he will sleep it all off and be our normal Benjamin tomorrow morning. We should hear something Monday. We also have his 15 month checkup at the peds so I will give a real update then on him being 15 months for those of you that are waiting for that :)
The picture above was taken this afternoon. It kind of shows how he was a bit hungover/ill through out the day.
