I would like to let you all know we made it home, over all the trip was very relaxing and we laughed a lot on the way home, (I will tell you about that in a little bit.)
During the MRI Michael had to have intravenous, they put patches over cream on both of his hands to numb the entry site but as it turned out Michael's veins were too small and they had to put it in his hand up further which really upset him, I watched as they put the " 10 sec medicine" they called it in the IV, Michael went to sleep crying and I managed to hold it together until he was totally out. Phew it is so hard to watch as his little eyes start rolling.
When Michael woke up he had a wild reaction to the medicine, it was heart breaking to watch him flip around , screaming about wanting to go back to the MRI and totally unresponsive to any suggestion, there was no reasoning, he screamed constantly for 20 minutes.
I left the room for a couple of minutes to breathe as I was totally overwhelmed, when I went back I was very calm ... I walked over to Michael as he was kicking his legs , reached down and pulled him into my arms and sat in the rocking chair with him and held him very tight... within 2 Min's he was calming. 15 min later we were able to leave with him. He couldn't walk yet so we rolled him around the hospital for about 45 minutes. He finally ate and Troy bought him webkinz.
Michael started talking about the Webkinz and asking questions so we knew Michael was back.... ACTUALLY he had totally flipped his mood, now he was on top of the world and couldn't stop talking for a minute... LOL It was hilarious and you would know how it did my heart good to see this after what I had just witnessed.
He did this all the way home in the car and Troy would make polite suggestions challenging Michael to see if he could read the rest of the Big Nate Book before he got to the boat, I had tears rolling down my face because if you seen the size of this book, hahahahaha... We just wanted a minute without talking but at the same time we were ecstatic Michael was so happy. I should also mention it is also so unlike Michael to talk so much, it must have still have been the reaction.. I like this version much better....We were told one of us would have to sit back with him and within the first two hours nudge him if he were to fall asleep.... fall asleep!! LOL
So today we are going to relax at home and do absolutely nothing, over all it was a fantastic trip, Michael called it a mini vacation.
I will be back to show you some deals I got!
Michael got two hard cover Big Nate books instead of a toy at ToyZrus I was so proud of his choice... I was also proud that Michael now pays for the items and now he waits for the change, he is so amazing learning so much all the time.
I will take pictures of mine!!!! eeek! Great deals!!!
I will be by to visit you all later or in the morning,
have a fantastic day
