Tomorrow, Ian will get a head CT. He's having the CT because of his huge noggin and developmental delays*. The CT will involve sedation. I am dreading the moment that I will have to hand over my baby for the procedure. We're going to CHOP, and they are the best, so I know that he will be in good hands, but they are not my hands.
* I haven't really blogged about the whole developmental delay issue. It's been a pretty emotional ride for us. At the reccomendation of my pediatrician, we had Ian evaluated by early intervention. I knew he was delayed in his gross motor skills, but when they told me that he qualified for services, I was surprised. It is a good thing, and he will be getting physical therapy once a week. He also scored extremely high in the cognitive and social interaction area (like 19 mos!). I'm already seeing progress in his motor skills from the work we have been doing. I worry that we're not doing the right thing, but in my heart I think we are.
Think of us tomorrow. I'll blog after to let you know what happened.
