Ahmad, possibly the perfect patient, had his MRI today, rescheduled from the last occasion when he was ill.
First, he had a cannula put in his hand, which was a matter of counting from one to six and it was done. He was quite happy to look at it afterwards despite one initial squeak of pain. Then, he went to the MRI department, and was taken inside with his mum. Before he knew it, he was asleep, and then waking up again a while later in the recovery room.
Mum had bravely waited during the hour of the test, and was faithfully by his side until the doctor had written the discharge report. Ahmad was also very pleased to be given a ball as a ‘well done.’
The doctor will look at the MRI scan in the coming days, and plan his surgery.
