Macey was a superstar with her MRI but alas the all knowing Doctors from Iowa City decided JUST to scan her knee and below. Even though somewhere floating around in Iowa City Hospital space there was documentation that they wanted the pelvic area and all the leg scanned. After three phone calls between the radiology staff, the insurance company and the University....well the University won and the insurance company said only the knee and below. So. That. Is. What. They. Did.
It showed lots of fluid of course cos everything is so big and some possible lesions but not what they were looking for. So yes we did get one good answer, but actually no answers.
Macey's bloodwork also came back from Mayo and it still had several abnormal readings...all over the place.....SO ....tomorrow her momma and daddy are taking her to Blanks Children's Hospital to find out what is going on with our girl.

It is about 2 hours from our home in Des Moines so not to bad, but we wish it was closer.
It seems like the only post we know how to write is the ones called UPDATES and we have lost the ability to write anything enjoyable, or funny......we are sorry for that to our readers.
WE also know there are friends out here in blogville that are suffering from losses in their family and we want to acknowledge them also. I know their family here in blogville is helping them stay strong.
I think blogville should take turn teaching those "Whole Family" classes at those fancy doctor schools. WE understand the importance of ribbons, and balloons, and hugs. We understand the importance of holding each others hands, drying our tears, and feeling with our hearts. Yep, we would be the best teachers.
