Mmmmm, Ketamine...

Dante woke up from his scans feeling just fine....... Never have I seen such a silly, drunken, heavy lidded, smarty-pants...... I think we're going to have to get a prescription for that stuff! He was a chatterbox too, but half the time you couldn't understand what he was saying because his speech was slurred, or he was dragging out the thought for so long. It was pretty funny. He said "Bugs!" just fine though. That boy was h-u-n-g-r-y after 20 hours with no food.

Today went well and according to plan. Mostly smiles and giggles. A few cranky demands for graham cracker bugs mid morning (you'd be cranky too if you couldn't eat for 18 hours), but otherwise, no trouble.

We will find out the results of all the scans late Wed. or Thurs.

Nurses, techs, and anesthesiologists were all very good today as well. Loving his crocs, and falling for the usual Dante charms. Letting Dante help out with the procedures has really helped him be more comfortable with everything. Of course, letting him help push the Propofol turned out to be a risk, as he was passing out before he finished the syringe. No kidding, less than 20 seconds after the injection started, Dante was layed flat and out like a light! Maybe that's the stuff we should get a hold of.... Word gets out about that, and every parent of a 2 year old will be knocking on their pharmacists door!

Tomorrow (wed.) we will go into the clinic for labs, and then on to the 2nd floor for round three. Keep your fingers crossed for lots of empty beds throughout the week!

Unfortunately, the battery died in the camera almost immediately, so not too many pics for tiday. But it's all charged up now....

Thanks to everyone who helped focus their energies toward Dante today. We appreciate all your efforts and are continually gratified by your support.
