May is almost here

I start back to work full time again in May - which for me, will thankfully only be 4 days per week. That being said, I'm still very upset. I can't seem to get over the fact that the majority of my children's days will be spend with someone other than us. I'm not sure why this is so difficult for me. Maybe it's because of everything we've been through. I just found out from a neighbor that she's heard a vague not so good opinion on the day care that we are planning on taking the girls to on Thursdays. I guess I may research looking into another place. I think there may be one more that did accept part timers that we didn't get to check out earlier.

Mady's Head/Chest MRI/MRA

I can't believe I haven't posted about this yet. My weeks FLY past. We spent 8 hours at Children's the day of her scan. Her appt was at 1pm, we had to be there at 12. They didn't take her into be sedated until 3:30pm. We got home at 8pm. She did so well. She was very pleasant until about 1/2 hour before they took her in - smiling and laughing. Her last bottle was at 7am, so she's quite a trooper.

The results showed the 3 liver hemangiomas and then an additional one in her neck. I talked to another pediatrician in my office, but have not yet spoken to Madeyln's normal physician. She'll be in on Wednesday. My concern is that we can't see the one on her neck and they said it was pretty sizeable. So, will it affect and muscles or nerves? And what about the cysts she had at her MRI in the NICU. Are those still there? All questions to ask her on Wednesday.

We are very relieved that she has none in the brain or airways, but I'm admittedly bothered by her having yet another one... even if we can't see it.
