What a Relief...

Finally got results back from the pediatricians office today from Evelyn's MRI. Apparently our regular doctor is out of town on vacation (damn him!) so I spoke with one of the nurses in the practice. The MRI showed no abnormalities of her brain growth or her pituitary gland. The only abnormality was the space around her optic nerve was larger than normal which is to be expected since her optic nerve is smaller than it should be. I can't even begin to say what a relief that this news is! It still remains to be seen how bad her vision will be and we will still have to monitor blood work with the endocrinologist for years to come but the fact that her brain is growing as it should and that there are no visible abnormalities with its structure is all very positive!
