Hopkins here we come... again

So tomorrow Quinn has two appointments at Johns Hopkins. She has to get two separate exams done; one with x-rays and one with an ultrasound... both with a catheter. Not looking forward to this at all. The exam is a VCUG or voiding cystourethrogram. You can look it up if you want the details.
I am so nervous for this exam. A member of my family's daughter had to go through this and they lived... so I am not so sure why I am so nervous. I think it is because I let my guard down. We have been doing so well, no major tests for almost a year (last Jan for Quinn's Brain CT). I think that I was just not prepared for it and no, this is not a huge deal like some of her other exams have been. But just the fact of talking to the doctors at Hopkins sort of makes my tummy nervous. We have the two exams tomorrow and then a follow up next Monday. I hate going there. It is a wonderful hospital but I just wish that we didn't have to be there, you know? Like you understand the severity of things when you are sent to Hopkins and they make a next day appointment for your child. The urgency scares me. Anyway as you all can see, I am a nervous wreck and just rambling on about worrying for my Quinny. Please remember us in your prayers tonight.

No questions asked you're both going to do great tomorrow. Of course we'll be praying for Quinn that everything will go well and that you have a sense of peace going into it. It won't be nearly as bad as you think, I promise. Been there unfortunately. We'll be praying for you.
