Results are in.

Somehow the transport guy took us the wrong way when he got us from our hospital room. We had to go through the halls of the operating rooms. We had to cover up with blankets and sheets, and hair nets. (Okay, so we put the hair nets back on in the pre-op area for the photo LOL) We could not contaminate the halls. Who knows why he took us this way? It surely made for a cute photo and some lovely comments from passerbyers. :)



The night leading up to the MRI, my Peanut managed to sleep better than she does normally at home. She wasn't on any new meds or anything, I think she was just worn out from the traumatic IV start. And yes, the blanket she is covered with is the work of Lacey, from Jaxson's Blankies. :)




In true Peanut style, her MRI results are NORMAL. NoRmAl!! No tethered cord, no syrinx, no chiari malformation! This is great news because it means she doesn't need any sort of spine or brain surgery. YAY! Of course, it's not great news because it means that the problems that are worsening are a sign of her underlying neuromuscular disorder, which is undiagnosed. Her neurogenic bladder worsening, the hydronephrosis, the ankle clonus getting significantly worse, the tightening of her ankle muscles. All now have no explanation. :( But, no brain or spinal surgery!

Such cute pics. Happy to hear Peanut will not need any brain or spinal surgery. Praying that you can figure out the other issues.

I am so happy the MRI showed negative for all those things. WHEW!! I am sorry, however, that this means there are still no answers as to her worsening issues. I am praying for you.

I just love all those pics. Peanut is just so cute and she has the greatest smile ever!

So glad the results are normal, but I get what you are saying, even though surgery is YUCK, it fixes things.
But so glad everything is normal! Great news, I love that last picture, what a cutie!

What a cutie pie! I'm happy to hear that the results of Peanut's MRI are normal. I know how frustrating it must be for you not to have any answers or a diagnoses. I hope that you get the answers that you are seeking very soon.
