Evan got hooked up to the EEG which was challenging, as it always is, but this time we upped the ante: instead of the standard 28-lead EEG, they placed 80 leads so they can gather more brainwave information. It took a long time and was rough for Evan. Mindy was a big help and at one point laid across Evan as everything was being hooked up.
The hospital is really nice and we are in a big private room with a couch that converts to a double bed. A huge upgrade to the hospital chairs that covert to a very makeshift sleeping space that i refuse to call a bed! There are cameras set up to watch Evan so they will see everything in the event of a seizure. The EEG techs can talk to us through a booming speaker in the ceiling -- it's all very "Wizard of Oz"! When they used a flashing light to test Evan for this type of sensitivity, we tried to get the wizard to DJ for us, but no luck. He did give us dinner recommendations though!
Aria and Evan have posed like this many times, in many hospitals, sharing Evan's hospital bed while watching a movie.
We are hoping for a seizure tonight: the sooner it happens, the sooner we get to leave! Fingers crossed!
