The hospital is really busy with epilepsy patients this week and they are diverting patients to other hospitals, so we’re just happy we were able to get in. Dr. Weiner told us he had to cancel two surgeries this week – I can’t imagine getting that call! Unfortunately, there wasn’t a room available that is hard-wired for the Video EEG machine so they had to bring the VEEG equipment into the room. Being in a hard-wired room gives you the freedom to unplug and walk down to the playroom and plug into the wall there to continue to be monitored. Evan was starting to get a little punchy sitting in bed all day, and we moved to a hard-wired spot this afternoon and he was happy to get to move around a little more and go to the playroom.
Luckily, Evan has been in a pretty good mood and that really makes things easier on us! He likes being naked and doesn’t want to wear anything so he’s been hanging out in a diaper (we’re back to the drawing board with potty training since surgery). I thought I’d share this photo from last night of Evan multi-taking: VEEG, playing with trains and watching TV. Now all he needs is someone to fan him and feed him grapes!
We finally got him in clothes today – you can’t walk around the hospital naked! At least that's what we're telling him! Things are looking good and we're waiting for the news that we can go home.
