Tanner's CT Scan

This last Monday Tanner had a CT scan of his head. He has been suffering from severe migraine headaches where he can't tolerate light and sound and throws up and basically goes to sleep for a few hours until it's gone. It's hard for us as his parents to see him suffer so much. When I was a child I suffered from migraines and sometimes still do...however, the doctor said since he's so young and gets them so frequently, it would be a good idea to get a CT scan to rule out anything serious that could be causing them. So Tanner and I had a special "date" to St. Joe's hospital in Ann Arbor for his CT scan. At first he was leary of the big machine, but they let me lay on there and they showed him how they put me in the "donut camera" and then he was ok with it. He laid so still and squeezed his eyes shut and held onto the teddy bear they gave him for the 5 minutes it took them to do the scan. (It also helped that I told him that if he didn't lay still, they would have to put him to sleep to do it!...I didn't want him sedated if he didn't have to be!)...Anyways, it was funny cuz Tanner was just in heaven having me all to himself that day, because he hardly ever gets one-on-one time with me. He was a total angel (no babies to bug or brother to fight with..hehe...the whole time I kept, this having one child thing is a piece of cake!! Anyways, we get the results in about a week, so hopefully everything is fine:)
