Well, she did it. Her first ever MRI without anaesthetic!
We are proud beyond words… 45 minutes lying completely still enclosed in a noisy machine with her head wedged tight. I was allowed to sit in there with her and can confirm that even with earplugs that machine is NOISY!
Children are given headphones and the option to listen to music or watch films to keep them calm during the scan. This also provides a way for the radiologist to talk to them to check they are ok and to tell them whats happening. Eleanor chose to listen to classical music during her scan… her reason being that any other music would make her want to sing and dance!
We are always proud of Eleanor, she is an incredible, brave little girl and this has made future scans so much easier for all of us.
Just the wait for results now. Fingers crossed!
