The Ultra Sound

Colton and I went to Phoenix hospital so he could get the ultra sound on his neck today. I laid Colton down on the hospital bed and the nurse attempted to put the ultra sound wand on his neck, but Colton had other things in mind. He wanted to play with the wand and eat the ultra sound gel..... crazy kid. After two minutes Colton decided that he didn't like the ultra sound all together. He was pushing the wand away and finally decided that screaming would be the best way to show just how much he hated having that stupid wand on his neck. I was doing the best I could to hold him steady so the technician could get the best pictures of his neck but Colton won that battle. He is so wiggly and kind of strong! Anyhow, after many tears the tech. got the needed pictures. She wasn't able to tell me exactly what she was able to see (they never can), but she hinted that she didn't see any cysts. She did say that finding a cysts is like trying to find a needle in a haystack, the cysts would be millimeters big at best. I looked at the screen and I didn't know what in tarnation anything was so I will just wait for the doctor to call here in a few days. I will be sure to let you know what we find out.
