We are finally home after our overnight to UVA. We are so thankful to report that David's scan was CLEAN!!!! We praise God for this wonderful news that will buy our family three more months of "normal" family life. Poor David was so sick last summer that he missed out on all the summer fun, so we are excited to have some sunshine fun this summer.
David handled the sedation for his CT scan well today. It seemed to take longer than usual, but it is a long process for a scan that only lasts a few minutes. He has to have a bolus of fluid to pre-hydrate his kidney, then he gets the contrast dye via IV which takes a while. He was gone from us for almost three hours. I wish I could say this whole process gets easier, but it simply does not.
This evening we are praising God for the good news from todays visit to UVA. It was a long ride home as we anxiously await the news from the scans, but we both were at peace. We trust in God's plan for our family and we know that whether the news was good or bad today, He would with us. God is the reason that we can have peace on these yucky scan days. Thank you to all who texted, messaged, emailed and most importantly prayed for our Rockstar today.
