Jack is rocking through all his scans. Yesterday it was a long day at Children's with the CT scan and doctor appointments. The hearing test was good, no additional damage to the ear. He does have some damage, so when he returns to school they will keep on eye on him too see if he'll need some special accommodations. The CT scans always causes some drama. Before the scan, they prepare a delightful 24 oz. beverage containing some liquid contrast one needs to drink 90 minutes before the scan. We didn't get all 24 ounces drank but they still got good pics. (Thank goodness!)

Today it was MIGB scans and we were told to come back tomorrow afternoon for additional images. So, bone marrow biopsy at 9am (be there at 7am) and then MIBG at 1pm. It's going to be a long day and little dude is probably not going to feel so great. I might need to make a quick run to ToysRUs tonight and get a little something special to get us through the day. A little Lego set is sure to brighten the day.

Pic: Jack pointing at the radioactive symbol on the machine. He's a bit like spiderman. :)

Today I'm thankful for:
- scans going good so far. We don't have any results yet, but Jack is being a trooper.
- good weather for our drives back and forth.
