CT Clear.

As expected Ashley's CT was clear. There was a new nodule on her lung however they said it was just "compression". I guess when your sedated your lungs can make little marks on the CT image and they aren't anything. She now has 2 of these. One was new but the other has been there since her diagnosis back in May. It has not changed in size so no worries said the doc's. Still... I get so nervous for CT's. It takes an army to prepare for them. Fasting, no breastfeeding, forcing her to drink this contrast solution, keeping her occupied while we wait for the contrast solution to reach her intestines... its really hard. Ashley managed to fall asleep in my arms 5 minutes before the Anasthesiolgist came to get her. This made it really easy to put her on the CT machine and she didn't wake up when I laid her down. The doc held the gas to her face for about 5 minutes and then... she was "out". The scan took 5 minutes and then she woke up 30 minutes later. She's my hero. She's such a champ. She barely even gets scared of the doc's anymore. And if she does... she's okay in just a few seconds. I like to think she gets that personality trait from me... I too can easily just brush things off and move on to the next thing. Its a great trait.
Next visit will be in 1 month. I'll post more then if not before.

Yippee for the clear scan! Way to go Ashley! I see the very low AFP that is wonderful as well. Happy Belated Birthday!
