The tests/exams are as follows:
- An ultrasound of his heart
- A retinal exam of both eyes
- A hearing test/screening
- A body scan/MRI
- Urine/kidney functionality test - this will be done in Boston
So far, he has had his heart and eyes check and everything looked perfectly healthy and normal with each. He is scheduled to have his hearing test on Monday, his MRI on Tuesday, Adam and I (with Ethan) go to Boston for his pre-admission/tour/information on Wednesday, come back home that same day.... then we may have one more hospital visit in Connecticut for final sign off Thursday or Friday, then we leave for Boston again for Ethan's final admission early that next Monday morning.
I still haven't fully processed that next week is my last week here at home for a very long time. And as you can see, it is a VERY busy week. I feel as thought I'm not ready... but I'm also anxious to just go and get this all over with...
Thank you so much for praying. This is such a strange time in our lives.
I would like to ask for praying for Ethan's remaining test/examinations. He has done very well with the tests so far, and the results have been perfect. Please pray that the remaining tests can be done easily and that Ethan cooperates as well as he has been. I'm slightly concerned about his ability to sit still for 45 minutes during the body scan on Tuesday, so pray for that specifically (I'm not sure of all the details yet, except that I know he will get injected with some dye then we will wait for 2 hours, then he will have a 45 minute scan).
