Ken and I walked, mentally exhausted at this point, to go get coffee at the cafeteria. We sat and talked and I was grateful he was there. We actually laughed and was able to have a good conversation. We distracted each other with stories and updates about the kids. We talked about work and his dog, and other random things. We talked about the past a little bit. And touched on the future. Today with him gave me hope that we could come out of the divorce ok and we could maybe, some day, be friends again.
We walked back to the waiting room after 45 minutes and this is when I start looking at the clock. It seems like they will call every name in the book except for your child's. When the nurse came and finally called "parent for Kyle" I instantly stood up and Ken let me go first to see him. In the past, Kyle would be real lathargic right after. I was so pleased to see that he was alert and even sitting up! I gave him a hug and kiss and told him how proud I was of him. He drank some apple juice and after the nurse checked him out, we were transferred from the recovery room to a regular room where we would wait for another nurse to check on him before we could go. He was pretty nauseous, dizzy and sleepy but after he was cleared to go, he got right up and got dressed and out the door we went. He did vomit twice on the way home, but now he seems to be doing fine.
Today is Friday, so I can not call for results until technically Wednesday but I will start leaving messages on Monday or Tuesday. All I can do is pray to God that it comes out fine with zero concern and have the neurologist tell me that we don't have to go through this for another 6 months, or year, which would be fantastic. I call this disease "the disease of the unknown" because you do not know what could happen or when or if anything even will. All I can do is pray, hope, and rely on friends and family to get me through. I could not love this little boy more. We will deal with whatever comes, together. <3
