when we got to see Whitney yesterday morning she looked great. her eyes were wide open, she was awake and moving around a lot. it was the best we had seen her. one of her doctors came in and talked to us and said he was going to order an mri to be done. shortly later she was given a sedative to keep her calm during the mri. when the results came back, the doctor said the radiologist had seen some moderate brain damage. he put this on a scale of mild to moderate to severe to profound. he wanted to make sure we knew it wasn't "normal" which is a word sarah and i are becoming to resent more and more. he did say that even though there were some damaged areas, a babies brain can shut down damaged areas and use other areas that may have normally went unused.
one doctor did say that sometimes in these situations you have to use the "look" test and judge them more by how they look and how they are moving vs. what a brain scan says. we don't know what to think. there will be another mri ordered in about 2 months to further monitor Whitney. i do know she looks better everyday. we are going to see her tonight, stay the night in the hospital's guest house and spend some more time with her tomorrow.
