Allie's Milk Scan This Morning

Every thing went really well. It wasn't that bad but it was no walk in the park either. We got really lost trying to find the place... had to go to 3 different buildings and ended up parking in the wrong hospital parking lot so we didn't get validation and had to pay anyway.

We arrived on time after going through a series of desks to get to where we needed to go. Allie was sleepy and was starting to get pretty hungry. We sat in the waiting room for about an hour. When they called our name we took her back and they took her bottle and put some radioactive stuff in it. The lady said it had no taste. Allie drank about half of her bottle. Then she was wrapped up and strapped down to a long plank table. The radiology equipment was then maneuvered directly above her leaving only about 3 and a half to 4 inches of space from her face to the machine. She of course screamed her head off for about 15 minutes. The x-ray tech put a kids music toy on next to her head to help soothe her. After about 15 minutes she fell asleep. She had to stay there for an hour. Once the hour was up we unstrapped her and got to go home.

It wasn't too bad just a little scary at first. We get the results on Monday. They told us they took an image every 10 secs and the doc would have 360 images to review to determine if she has reflux, how bad it is, and how long it takes her stomach to empty.
