Elijah looked like a character from a science fiction novel this morning. Several electrodes were placed on his head while I held him. Then he looked like he was wearing a turban. His head was wrapped up so he wouldn’t tear the electrodes off. Needless to say, Elijah looked quite silly for his EEG and he behaved very well. He slept through most of the test, but he was awake some so the test would have good awake/sleep cycles.
We won’t know the results until the neurologist reviews the test, but the technician said she didn’t see anything strange. That’s good enough for me right now and hopefully the doctor will say the same thing. If he determines that Elijah still isn’t having seizures, we can start weaning him off of Phenobarbital. We’ll let you know when we find out.
This afternoon/evening we got to meet Andy’s nice co-worker Ann and her cute little girl Aubrey. Elijah and Aubrey are kindred spirits since they’ve both spent time in the NICU (Aubrey surprised her mommy and daddy by arriving four and a half weeks early). I can tell that Elijah and Aubrey are going to be great friends!
Well, that’s all I have to report for today. Hope you are all enjoying the fall weather and having a great week! Elijah is going to go take a bath and go to bed. Sweet dreams everyone!
