Pre-op


Nate's pre-op appt went well this morning. Since he will be put under anesthesia (the very first time I have written that word without spell check popping up...go me!) for the MRI tomorrow, he had to undergo pre-op this morning.

The nurse practitioner shared my concern about the possibility of malignant hyperthermia, and thankfully he will be given anesthesia that is safe for kids with muscle issues and not given the neuromuscular blocking agent "Succinylcholine". Some muscle diseases make a person more prone to experiencing malignant hyperthermia when put under anesthesia, which could be life threatening. It is rare that this happens, but it is serious if it does indeed occur. This is something that I have worried about for a while, and I am just so relieved that precautions are being made before hand.

His MRI is scheduled for 7:30 tomorrow morning. We'll be at the hospital for a good part of the day. Please keep the little guy in your prayers.

We will definitely be thinking of you guys tomorrow! I know how nerve wracking it is to have your little one put under anesthesia.
Hope everything goes well!

He is always in our thoughts and prayers! We will continue to pray. I know how nerve wracking it is to have your child put under, as I have had my little one put under. Prayer will surround him during this time, rest assured!

I prayed for you and your family and esp. the little fat, cute, sweet, bald baby! I pray protection on him during his procedure, I pray wisdom for the Dr.'s, and I pray for the Lord's peace to be on you and wrap around you like a warm blanket. His peace that passes all understanding. He is forever with you, carrying you thru the storm.
