Goodbye cords, Hello MRI

Good news is she got her cords off from the EMU (brain activity test), bad news is they took her away for her MRI. I don't know what is up with me today but the thought of them taking her away and putting her to sleep put me into a crying frenzy! I know there are always risks with putting a baby under so I am going on 4 hours sleep and i can't stop crying! It's going to be 3 hours and it is going sooooo slow. There is a prayer in my heart constantly and I can't wait til it's over. I know it is necessary and there will be tons of good information from all this, and i hope it rules out future problems......but I'm loosing it! Stay strong, stay strong!!! Here are some pictures of her after they took all that junk off her and then they put her IV in. She did great and only cried for a little while. She is such a big girl already, strong and ready for whatever life dishes out to her. It's amazing that this experience has really made me feel grateful!  Seeing her hooked up to all that stuff made me think how happy I am that she doesn't have something life threatening.  There are families here who can't say that, and my heart aches for them.  I am impressed with the nurses who care for these sweet spirits and am grateful for them!  Thank you all for your prayers and happy thoughts on our behalf, it does really help!!!
