Addie had another CT scan this morning, to see if there's some problem in her sinuses that keeps causing these ear infections to come back, again and again.  If they don't see anything major, then we're on to tubes.  If they do see sinus problems, then no tubes, because apparently they'll just drain all the green pus from the sinuses.  Yikes.  Then we're in for surgeries, with sinus washes and all that.

But she was such a brave girl, getting moved in and out of that machine.  I felt her body relax when the tube began to whir and she got mesmerized by the movement.  She held perfectly still as they slid her body in and out.  It was just a few minutes, but stuff like that freaks me out, echoes far more serious things.  Suggests what it might be like if something worse came down the line.

Addie has no such associations, though.  She hopped up when it was done, munched on some m n m's, and that was that.  She only cried when we got to school late and she had missed her group's time for music hour, which she loves.  All in all, not a bad deal.  Just a little extra radiation and a missed chance at the tambourines.
