Biopsy results

Thank heavens, the nodules in my breast are "just cysts"! Hallelujah!!!

Peanut has her spine MRI on Monday. I am SO anxious for this, I cannot wait to hear the results. This is the test that was recommended to us by the doctors at the microcephaly convention. I hope that something fixable shows up, that might help my Peanut!

Because she has to be NPO for 8 hours, and the MRI is scheduled at 8am on Monday, we have to be admitted Sunday night. She can't go anywhere near 8 hours NPO. So we will go in at 8pm on Sunday, and get hydration all night. Off to the MRI, fully sedated for at least an hour, head to recovery, and then home. Hopefully the results will be in quickly after that!

Thanks for checking in on us. I really appreciate it!
