Yep. Every 6 months, Toots gets another EEG to check his seizure activity. He has absence seizures – seizures in his sleep. The last EEG took place during Christmas break so he wouldn’t miss school.
Nearly in tears. (He hates anyone even touching his head so…
The purple marker is to determine all the places to put electrodes.
After about 20-25 electrodes are placed, his head is wrapped in gauze and gauze is wrapped around the wires to the recorder which is placed in a backpack that he must take everywhere for 24 hours.
Once he’s home he plays, but he knows he cannot stray from the backpack.
The next morning, after sleeping on it, the gauze always falls away, exposing the electrodes.
The removal is done with more gauze soaked in a removal liquid. It’s rubbed on the electrodes to loosen them from the sticky paste. This is quick but Toots yells and fights this more than the placement. Thus, no photos.
Results? Stable but “abnormal”. Details to follow.
