Five years ago I barely even knew what an MRI was. Since then, the word MRI has featured far more frequently than I would have liked within my family. Due to serious health scares with three of my four children, they have each undergone the stressful procedure of an MRI. Two of them were just four at the time so had to be put to sleep. As any parent knows this is heartbreaking to go through. One of my children was seven though and we made the tough decision to keep him awake for it. Luckily I was able to tell him exactly what to expect as I myself had to have an MRI just last year. You can read about my MRI experience here at my blog My Boys And Me.
