Unfortunately, this post is not about those leads. This is about J-Bean and her tumultuous relationship with the 26 electrodes attached to her head for a 48 hour period!
Before Josephine was diagnosed with Tetrasomy 8p Mosaicism, when Josephine was about 9 months old, we went to the neurologist, Dr. Aviva Bojko, to determine the reason for Josephine’s developmental delays. Dr. Bojko prescribed an ambulatory EEG and a brain MRI to see what was going on. Let me tell you…the difference a year makes!
The first time around, applying the electrodes was awful. Josephine screamed and screamed. But afterwards, she was fine. I don’t think she was aware of her surroundings and her body, so it was no big deal.
That is NOT the case at 2 years old! This time she was wonderful when the leads were applied. Afterwards, at home…screaming, crying, sleepless nights for the hubby (thanks, Sheldon) and lots of daily frustrations for me.
Thankfully, the EEG was removed this morning and we have our Principessa back. Granted, she is tired and grumpy. But I will take that over what happened during the last 2 days ANYTIME!
We will have her results on November 8! Keep those fingers crossed!
