Ok, so I just found out that Jackson will have to have an IV for sedation during his MRI.
I knew he would be sedated but I really thought they would use gas to make him sleepy and then put in the IV. No such luck! He’ll be completely awake while they put the IV in and I’ll be sitting there with him.
Does anyone have any tips on how I should prepare Jax for this? Should I tell him ahead of time or just wait until we’re at the hospital? Is there anything I can do while they’re starting the IV to make it any easier on him and me?
The good news is that I can stay with him until he is completely asleep and they take him back for the actual test. And as soon as the test is over, they’ll bring me back in so I’ll be there when he wakes up. So he’s never going to know I was gone!
I hate needles (except for the tattoo variety of course) and especially IVs!
