MRI, baby shower, etc.

Claire had her MRI today.  I think it stressed me out more than her!  Well, we tried not to have to use sedation.  I gave her a baby massage and fed her and we wrapped her tight, but the MRI tech thought we needed the sedation.  So we gave it to her and she went out.  We went down at 10:30 am and didn't get done until almost 1 pm.  I was able to pull a chair up right beside the MRI machine and sit beside Claire as she was scanned.  They did pictures with and without contrast.  Her nurse was able to watch the pictures and commented on how Claire's stomach is so compacted and all of her intestines are squished to one side.  After the MRI she was still so sedated, she had lots of little bradys.  But the doctor said it was because she was so relaxed that her heart rate was lower. 

Claire did an awesome job and is so brave!  This little girl is so tough.  We totally admire her. 

This past weekend, we had a baby shower for Claire.  I had a great time!  It was very last minute, but with graduation and the holidays coming up (and hopefully Claire coming home), this was the only time we had available.  The food was delicious, the fellowship was great, and Claire got some awesome gifts. 

One of Claire's favorite nurses brought her 2 outfits today at the hospital.  One is a Christmas outfit and the other a 2011 outfit.  Claire will always have more stylish clothes than me!  She is loved already by so many. 

They went up on Claire's feeds today, so hopefully she will be more satisfied.  And can hopefully come off of the IV fluids soon.  We hope to hear more about the MRI tomorrow and if anything has changed.  And still trying to get a family meeting with the surgery team.  Our favorite doctor is working on that for us! 

Have a great day and continue to pray for Claire!
