I haven't updated in approx 3 months.  I should get on that.  I should also write up Reese's birth story because it was pretty great.

Reese has an MRI today at 9am.  She can't eat for 4 hours beforehand.  It's 8am and she's been screaming and crying for about 45 minutes already.  This sucks and also makes no sense since she is usually absolutely fine and sleeping at this hour.  We woke her up at 445 and offered her a large bottle, then I breastfed her back to sleep and handed her to Mark.  If she cried afterwards, I would've just pulled my boob out and she couldn't eat beyond that point.

I'm just really hoping they are somewhat on time for the MRI because I am not a happy camper just letting my baby cry cause she's hungry.

That sounds awful! Why did she have the scan, is she ok?

She has a bump on the back of her head that could just be extra skin or could be brain or something else equally horrible/scary. Luckily, the dr called us and said it looks like everything is okay, we should just see a neurologist to possibly get the extra skin removed so it doesn't cause a problem in the future. He called us last night with preliminary results but is calling tomorrow once he goes over her her file.

I went in to the MRI with her and then they had to sedate her so I was there holding her until they put her under and then they did the scan. It took an hour which felt like forever but she's fine now. The worst part was that they put a bunch of medical tape on her head and the nurse was like "yea, that's not going to be fun taking that out, it's going to rip out all her hair". I figured that would be torture so I googled and soaking the tape in olive oil worked like a charm.

I'm just happy she's okay! I know we still have to go to a neurologist but that can wait a while if we want.
