This picture breaks my heart. I took it moments before going into the hospital. She was so excited to be going somewhere with mommy!
So obviously, she had to be sedated for the MRI because 3 year olds can't hold their heads still. It was so awful. The sedation they gave her made her eyes go all out of focus, and her arms and legs were doing all these jerky motions. She finally fell asleep and they carried her away. I had to fight so hard not to cry! I hated seeing her in that big machine with oxygen on. I had to go to the cafeteria to eat some food to keep my mind off it.
She slept for 2 hours afterwards, and exactly at the 2 hour mark she sat straight up, and was way dizzy and wobbly. She also was talking very slow. She became very impulsive and was uncoordinated. She also said crazy things like a drunk person! Apparently the stuff doesn't ware off completely for 24 hours! Anytime she walked anywhere for the entire day, Nate or I had to hold her hand or else she would fall or walk head first into a wall or something!
On the way home, I asked her what kind of treat she wanted for being such a brave girl, and all she said was, "Green!" (you see what I mean about the drunken behavior) so I got her a green apple slush from sonic. She drank it VERY slowly.
She was so happy to be home. She spent lots of time watching movies and cuddling with daddy.
This is just a picture from when she had her ER experience and MRI. Everytime she would look at her 'stickers,' she would freak out, just as you see here. No more of that this year! Good job Kaylee! I'm so proud of you!
