We finally got called back at 1, now mind you, by this time on a normal day Dasha has already had a snack and a large lunch so she is doing extremely well. She did see a picture of some food on a magazine and was signing "eat" to us but no fits. They take us to a room, get her pulse ox. her blood pressure, and then put some numbing cream on her arm for the I.V. After about 15 minutes they came in to do the I.V. I let Randy do all that stuff so she cried but didn't throw a fit, and then they taped her arm on a little board thing so she couldn't bend her arm. She didn't like that!
Then the interesting thing happened. They asked if I could get her to go to sleep so they wouldn't have to sedate her, so I was like, I will try but no guarantees. By now it is almost 2 well past her nap time so I snuggled her up next to me and held her tightly so she would quit squirming, we don't rock to sleep at home, and within 5 minutes she was asleep! The nurse came in and took her and she woke up, but was still very groggy. They took her, we weren't allowed to go and they said they would see how it goes. Maybe sedation, maybe not. 10 minutes later they were back, she laid there perfectly still so NO sedation was needed! They were super impressed, so were we! They gave her some juice and some crackers and she SCARFED them down, she was so hungry! We were out of there probably an hour before we would of if she would of been sedated! So we went back to the car where I fed her lunch on the way home, and relieved my mom who came up from Wichita to watch Camden for us.
We get the results of her scan on Thursday, so just praying for a normal scan and after that we are done with doctors for the next few months! Wahoo!
