scratch that last post.....

The pediatrician called yesterday......she does not want Teagan to have the MRI until she is 6mos old!! Yippee!! so it is now scheduled for July. This is such a relief! If she would do it before 6mos, they would have to use anesthesia, and I did not want to have her go through that.

Here is a recent pic of my baby girl:

a little scared...

Remember way back when Teagan was less than 2 wks old and had to have the u/s on her birthmark?! Well to remind you, she had the u/s and we were told that the birthmark was just fine, but in the process they found a lipoma (fatty tissue/tumor) near her spine. The doc was supposed to talk to radiologist about the findings (they recommended an MRI)...but we never heard anymore about it. When I took Teagan to her 2mos appt, the doctor remembered about it when she saw Teagan's birthmark. She said that she would call and request a neurosurgeon consult and hopefully we could skip having the MRI if at all possible. Well, I received a call from the doctors nurse, stating that the neurosurgery dept had recieved the referral and they had looked at the u/s pictures....they want an MRI before meeting for a Teagan is scheduled to have it on April 25th (they want her to be between 3 & 4 mos old), she is on a "move-up" list in case anyone cancels. I have to say that I am extremely nervous about this....they will have to sedate my baby in order to do the MRI. Ok, so I am preparing myself for this......

Today I received a call from the hospital appointment people, they stated that Teagan has an appointment scheduled on March 14th with the dermatology clinic...this has me very confused....the lady said something about this will speed up the process or something like that (mason was being very loud while I was trying to get the info). I really have no idea what this appointment is for...only guessing it is to look at the birthmark?! so any way, I really not sure how to prepare for an appt that I have no idea about.....not sure if I should make hubby go with me or not...
I will update when I have some sort of a clue of what is happening.....
