Lily’s 1st MRI

Lily had the MRI done on her ankle today. There’s no spot in the baby book for this!

How do you explain what’s going to happen during an MRI to a 9-year-old?!

I found a really cool explanation online that said that magnets in this tube would make the water in her body all spin in the same direction to give a really good picture of her ankle. The cool part? She wouldn’t be able to feel it! Lily really seemed to like that.

The bad part? The machine would be super loud, and she’d have to wear headphones.

The hardest part for Lily was staying still. Her ADHD kicked in. She kept wanting to play with her silk blanket and move her hands. The tech only had to retake one of the pictures.

We have a follow-up with the orthopedist next week, so we’ll have the results and develop a treatment plan then. The wait sucks!
