This Friday went much smoother even with a major delay due to a malfunction of some oxygen machines... something you always want to hear that the oxygen "machine" is not working properly. We got to clinic for 10am but Mimi did not go into the procedure room for her Spinal Tap until around 1pm! She did awesome though she got lots of art done, played some video games and had some visitors even Sarah who talks with her hands and talks to Aladdin! ;)
She will be going for Spinal Taps every Friday for the next 3 weeks and started a new pill daily. I will update with the exact study she is on when I get back to the computer. MagiBoo just got into soap...
