MRI Results

The MRI went off a bit later than planned but we're getting used to "hospital time" and we're ok with it. She came back up about 3pm and wasn't in the best shape. She was in pain from the wound in her head and started crying pretty hard as she woke up. Fortunately, Nurse Julie had the morphine handy! She was also having trouble with her "A" line IV and it was giving her some added pain so after fiddling with it for a bit, they just decided she didn't need it any more and pulled it out. Everyone breathed a collective sigh of relief.

She's very groggy still and they are watching her levels and adjusting liquids as they go.

Dr. Kahn came in (I didn't have a chance to ask him about the boots) and gave us a brief report on the MRI. He said it shows that they got about 50% of the tumor which is still pretty good. It was interesting to hear him comment on the size. Must have been pretty big for him to make special note of it.
We won't know anything else until the pathology on the tumor comes back in a few days. Until then, we'll just be keeping Charlotte as comfrtable as possible. Oh yeah, and eating. And eating. And eating.
