Meckel Scan

So I took Jaxon into St. Charles Redmond today for a Meckel Scan.
He did fantastic. He cried a lot when they injected the dye but held his arm still even though it hurt and otherwise did great. He had to lay pretty still on his side for about an hour. He got a bit wiggly at the end but they got the scans done. The techs were great, so patient with him. I got him a new movie (Spiderman 3) to watch on his DVD player while he was laying there which he was very excited about.

Now to just wait for the results.

Here is a little about what a Meckels Diverticulum is if this is what is causing the blood in his stool....

and about the scan...
