3-5 Day Video EEG

Monday, October 28, 2013

We had a 6 month check-up with the neurologist/TS specialist recently. We mentioned to him that we have noticed Joel staring off a few times over the past two months, but it has been random and didn't last long so we weren't 100% sure it was a seizure. The doctor wants to do a video EEG that will last 3-5 days in the hospital to rule out seizure activity since Joel does have a history of staring seizures. He said even if Joel doesn't actually have a seizure while in the hospital they will be able to see other things on the EEG that will let them know if something has changed since his last EEG (that he back in April or June).

Please say lots of prayers for us, and pray that the doctors will quickly see what they need so we don't have to keep our little guy in the hospital for too long.
