EEG Today

Sylas is having an EEG done today at Children's Hospital in Milwaukee. This test is mainly used to diagnose epilepsy, and since Sy's seizure back in February was not a typical febrile seizure (his fever was only 101.5), we need to check into other causes.

Please pray for us! The test is at noon and Sylas needs to fall asleep for it, without sedation and in a BIG BOY BED!!! I don't see how this is going to work. The plan is to leave soon, keep him awake in the car, do a little shopping and then have an early lunch. Hopefully it will tire him out, so he'll fall asleep easily.

We won't know the results of the EEG for about a week, but I'll be sure to keep you posted.

Thanks for loving our son. I feel so blessed to "know" all of you.



  1. Yikes ... you have a few odds against you .... but I will pray he is so exhausted, he falls asleep quickly and stays sleeping too ....

  2. Praying he will sleep soundly during the test, and the results show that he is just fine.

  3. Hope all goes well and Sy falls asleep without trouble. Praying that seizures were a "one time thing".

  4. Bri, mom and I prayed for you guys today...lots of love, Rachel

  5. Thinking of you and praying for you at this anxious time.

  6. Was praying for Sylas today...just saw on your Twitter link that Sylas survived the EEG...or atleast you did!! So glad!!!

  7. Praying for you and Sylas, and hoping that you get good news!


Thank you so much for taking the time to share. I love hearing from you.

P.S. I'm sorry for the word verification step, but oh, my. I'm getting lots of spam.
