Well, Bennett came through the MRI with no problems. He fell asleep within 10 minutes of getting his sedation medication. They strapped him in, covered him with a blanket, put plugs in his ears and slid him in. I was allowed to sit in a rocking chair next to the machine. I think the hardest part was seeing him in the MRI unit - he looked so incredibly small. He woke up about an hour later and despite warnings that he may be fussy, he was his usual happy self.
Now, as Kiera said in the comments below, is the hard part - waiting for the results. I want them to be normal, although I know that is unrealistic and that it won't mean that he doesn't have CP - but still, normal would be good.
Bennett was pretty much spoiled the rest of the day. Not that he was being needy or sucky - more like Mommy & Daddy were. So, he went for a nap with Daddy (rather than the crib) and then slept in the co-sleeper and with us (rather than the crib). He had a nap yesterday in the crib - Daddy was at work, so I could do whatever I wanted. However, he has spent every other night in the co-sleeper. I'm starting to doubt that the boy will ever spend a night in the crib - it's a good thing we got one that converts to a bed.
Tomorrow, he has PT & OT. I'll try to post the milestone update then.
Thank you so much to everyone for your thoughts and prayers - we really appreciate them!
