Two years ago, Adam had a sedated MRI looking for any abnormalities that had caused his febrile seizure. Nothing was found. Now with this recent “unprovoked” seizure, it’s time to take a peek again.
Last time, Adam fought the nurses off who tried to put in an IV. It was awful and it was my biggest concern this time around. After we arrived in radiology today, the nurses put some numbing cream on his future IV site and fired up a Cars DVD.
Then a lady appeared in the doorway.
What she said,
Hi, I’m Julie. I’m your Child Life Specialist. I’m going to help you out today.
What I heard,
Hi, I’m an angel of God. I have an iPad and a Thomas the Train book to razzle dazzle your son with.
While Julie showed Adam how to build cars on the iPad and blocked his view of his left arm with the Thomas book, the other nurses inserted his IV in the easiest procedure we have ever had done in the history of medical care.
Thank you Riley Hospital. We love you.
