Elise had her EEG done Tuesday morning to test for seizures. She was such a trooper. When I laid her down on the bed she soon began her excited kicks and moving her head back and forth.
All of us agreed she was NOT going to hold still so they rolled her up like a burrito. The tightness of the blanket wrapped around her plus Mickey Mouse Clubhouse made one happy little girl. She laid so still as they made marks all over her head then put wire after wire on.
After it was all done, the nurse turned off the lights and left the room with only me in there. A few minutes went by and I noticed her eyes were starting to close. Another few minutes later and she was asleep and snoring. She was so tired that even when they shined a bright light in her face she stayed asleep.
They had hoped she would fall asleep. I guess keeping her up 2 hours later and her waking up at 5:30AM, like the nurse advised me to do, did the trick.
We should get the results any day.
I LOVE being a mom to my 5 kids; one with special needs. There is no greater joy than being a parent! I love each one individually but this blog will mostly focus on our daughter with special needs and our journey with her. Thanks for reading!
