Undoing Some Dental Work For Ben’s Upcoming MRI

Two days from now grandson Ben will have the third MRI since his two brain surgeries last May.  In July he had two MRIs, both of which showed that blood clots had developed in his brain.  His doctor in New York was confident that the clots will dissolve on their own, and this upcoming MRI will reveal whether they have in fact begun to dissolve or whether treatment may be necessary.

In August Ben had dental surgery in which his baby teeth were capped. The dentist also put in a spacer.  Unfortunately, the MRI cannot be done with that much metal in Ben’s mouth, so another trip to the dental surgeon was in order.  The spacer was removed yesterday.

In the meantime, Ben continues to love pre-K and enjoys his trips to the library, his music class, and playing in the school gymnasium and on the playground.  He also loves the activities at his church, like this recent pirate event…

Ben the pirate


Please keep Ben in your thoughts and prayers as he undergoes this MRI.  We are believing that the clots will be gone and that he will not have to be placed back in pediatric intensive care for treatment.  Our little guy has gone through so much, but he has a deep faith that sometimes amazes me.  This is one of his favorite songs, one that this precious 4-year-old often sings…
