A little after midnight, the testing began. First was the MRI, with contrast and without. It took over 3 hours to complete and was physically taxing because Drew had to lay flat on his back the whole time. The CT was also done in the early morning hours. Drew had lots of visitors---probably 30 or more in all. The bone scan was also completed. His pain level was up and down, but definitely increased because of all the procedures he'd undergone.
Many of our church family, some of the youth group, and others crowded his tiny little room to visit with him. His spirits were lifted, and he had a good time laughing and joking with everybody.
