We survived Nik’s ambulatory EEG! My little man? A total trooper. He tolerated all the electrodes and tape and goo for a full twenty-four hours. It wasn’t all rainbows and unicorns but it was so much better than any of his previous EEG’s.
We won’t have results until next week after the neurologist has had a chance to review the data. Our money is on the results showing no seizure activity but we’re bracing ourselves just in case we’re wrong. If we’re right, we get to celebrate two years of Nik being seizure-free! According to our neurologist, that’s pretty much the benchmark for declaring that Nik is not at risk for a later recurrence of his seizures.
I’d say we’re due for a mark in the win column, wouldn’t you? Because, seriously, while this is awfully darn cute,
I think Nik would be just as happy not to have to repeat it any time in the foreseeable future.
