Amelia had her first check up MRI at Randwick on Tuesday 31st August. She needed a general anaesthetic, but the whole procedure went very well and amazingly, it was quite a fun day for Amelia and me. We didn't have a pre-medication because of problems in the past, but the gas wasn't too bad without it.

We had originally been scheduled for a CT scan, but on advice from Amelia's grandfather, John, we had it changed to an MRI (we have since discovered that they don't use CT scans at all at Westmead).

The great news is that the scan was all clear. We were expecting good news, but we were greatly relieved to hear it anyway. We know that Amelia's prognosis is very good, but there is still a small chance that the cancer will reappear so this first follow up scan was a bit nerve racking.
