We can’t help but to feel a bit like Abraham. Instead of an altar it’s an MRI tube. Instead of a mountain it’s a rise to the 18th floor at Lurie Children’s Hospital. Still, our story includes an obedient and unknowing son and parents who are wholly dependent on the mercy of an all-powerful, good and perfect God.
Brouwer made us very proud (again) yesterday. He took some versed to make it easier for the nurses to find a good vein (which is very hard on him due to lingering baby chub) but, besides the versed, he didn’t receive any anesthesia or sedation. Brouwer was awake for the MRI and laid perfectly still. None of the MRI sequences needed repeating.
It’s August 23 today which means that it’s almost 2 years since diagnosis (September 2). Today’s MRI results will be the second set since we rang the bell earlier this year (February 15th) to signal the end of chemotherapy. We’ll receive the results today around 2:30.
