Here's To A Boring Year

Too much excitement just might kill me!

Another 3 months, another MRI

Yes, it’s that time again.

Fasting, stress, anxiety etc. I’ll spare you the repeat.

Once again we have an 8 day wait for the results, which we will get just 2 days before the anniversary of Monkey’s diagnosis.

But I have a question for you.

I’ve (sort of) night weaned Monkey the past couple of months (that’s a post I still have yet to get to!) and the general rule is no milk until 4:30am. But the fasting for his anaesthetic requires no milk after 2am.

So… Do I wake him at 1:45am for a drink of milk? Will he even drink any, or just be annoyed at being woken? Is that likely to make him any less hungry at 9:15am (booo, we’re second on the list this time) than if he’s fasted from 7:30pm the night before? Or is it likely to set a bad precedent regarding night milk and/or just be a wake-up for no reason?

    I am normally all about consistency, but I would wake him up and nurse him. I’m sure he won’t know the difference between 1:45 and 4:30 and one day is not going to reset his clock.

    Agree with pomegranate. One time won’t kill consistency. These are exceptional circumstances. Fingers crossed for best news, and soon.

    Me too! It’s going to be such a wretched day (even though he seems to take it like SUCH a champ!) that I say do anything you can to make it better. Here’s hoping he nurses and falls right back to sleep. Good luck to you all.

    For sure feed him. Special circumstances require special consideration, no matter how much routine is important. Right?
