MRI Results

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Joel had an MRI of his brain yesterday afternoon. Everything went well. We couldn't feed him four hours prior to being sedated which was the worst part of the whole thing. I think this picture shows you how Joel felt about that..

The neurologist called this morning and said the MRI showed that Joel does have tuberous sclerosis. It's definitely not the news we wanted, but thankfully there were only a few small lesions on his brain and they are non-malignant. {The irritation from these lesions is what was causing the seizures.}

So.. now the next step is to have more tests to check his other organs (heart, kidneys, eyes) for lesions.

Please continue to pray for our precious baby. Pray the other tests will be normal, and pray that the lesions on his brain won't effect his development/learning as he gets older. Also, please pray for Jer and I. I think the hardest part of all this is that we don't have our support system here.
