Andrew MRI Update

His MRI was scheduled for today to see if he has Chiari malformation.  Late yesterday we canceled it.  I was feeling uncomfortable about it because there are so many questions I have first before sedating the little guy for an hour and a half procedure.  The neurosurgeon would not see him without the MRI so I called our pediatrician yesterday.  She was able to schedule us for a consultation with a pediatric neurologist instead so we can get all of our questions answered, review the CT scan, and come up with a plan.  He can't be seen until May, but the pediatrician is OK with that and Sean and I are, too.  So we shall wait upon the Lord, as my friend Patti Votaw said!  :)

In other happenings, I noticed a red car parked in our cul-de-sac around midnight Sunday/Monday morning on  my way home from work.  I didn't think much of it because our neighbors always park up there.  Well, yesterday I noticed an elderly lady sitting in the car around 10:30 in the morning.  Sean said I should go see if she was OK, but I was a little creeped out by it so I waited for Sean to come home.  He asked her what was going on and she just said that somebody was after her and that she was waiting for someone to come and get her.  Well, we put two and two together and realized she had been sitting in her car for about 13 hours straight in front of our house.  We called the sheriff's department and they came out and questioned her and then took her to a hospital.  She said again that someone was trying to harm her and that she followed a Jeep up here (our neighbor) and that God told her to sit up here and wait.  The officers were able to contact her family and they should be by today to get her vehicle.  So yah, that was our excitement for yesterday!

I am thankful for the neurologist appt. too, and the wait to see if MRI is necessary. Love and prayers are kept for Andrew (and all of you).

Hope the elderly woman is ok. Will you get an update as to what happened?

Probably not, but her family did come by and get the car last night.
