The EEG is over and Fingers Crossed

Well yesterday was Sean's EEG. He was only allowed to sleep 4 hours, yes you read that right 4 hours the night before. As you can see he just wanted to go to bed...

He stayed up until midnight with daddy and I woke him up at 4 AM. It was a long night and day yesterday.

We had to get to the hospital by 7:30 to check in and our EEG was at 8:00. We checked in and went over the EEG nuero lab and they brought us back to our room and the nurse was telling us what they were going to do and started putting the wires on Sean's head and he lost it.

She took the few he had left on that he didn't pull off and said for us to try to get him to sleep.... well after 30 mins I went and talked with her and said he is not going to go to sleep so she suggested we go and watch tv or something that will relax him.

So we grabbed our bink (blanket) and pees (paci) and went to go watch some curious george. We also found a toy one of those toys you have to push the shapes up and over and around the wires this was a LIFESAVER.

We decided to take that back to our room with us and he played and played and did I say played with it the entire time she was putting the wires on him and the gauze and it did not bother him one bit. We were so proud and than she left him play with it the entire time she was doing the readings.

She said he was very sleepy and didn't move to much so she said she thought it would be a good enough reading. It better be I don't think any of us can go thru all of this again.

He was very well behaved for being very very sleep deprived and of course fell asleep in the stroller on the way to the car once we were done but only slept 2 hours yesterday until last night when he slept for over 12 hours.

He is still cranky today but so am I, we are all still sleep deprived. They said we should get the results some time by the end of next week.

Fingers crossed

Ugh, I can't believe the little bugger wouldn't fall asleep! He's determined, huh?? Too bad they couldn't follow you out as you left with the stroller LOL. Well, at least you got everything done. Now, just wait for the results, and you'll be all set. I hope you've caught up on your sleep! Happy Easter!
