Going to the pedi neurologist this Thursday


Going to the pedi neurologist this Thursday....

Well I have the best news one worrying mommy could hope for. Good by August hello THURSDAY. Yes I did write Thursday and I mean this Thursday April 24. Thursday that is two days away. We are going to see the pedi. Neurologist this Thursday. I called Loyola and asked the scheduler to connect me with a nurse in Dr S. office because I had a few questions.
I asked her because I wanted to make sure I was doing everything and have everything ready for when we get to our appointment because I don't want to miss anything. I asked should I write down when I think he is having a absence seizure do I right the date, the time, or just a check mark. She said why do they think he is having seizures, I said because we just found out that he suffered an in-utero stroke. I also explained that we attempted and EEG and it didn't work.

She said you are NOT waiting until August come in on THURSDAY. That is music to my ears. I am so excited I do not need to wait to get more answers. I know he may not be able to answer all of them but at least I can hear it from someone in a language I can understand.

I have lots more questions to write down for our appointment I have 20 so far. Yep 20 but now I just got a copy of Sean's blood work and what I was told was all normal is not showing normal on the results. I know it is hard because our pedi. Had a mild heart attack last week. His protein c and s are low and another one is high. I saw because I asked them to fax them all to me for Sean's appointment so I will ask the neurologist and for now just try to stay calm and breathe.
