Sort of Seizure Free

Malachi had a few partial seizures this morning. We kept an extra close eye on him today since the last grand mal he had was precluded by a partial. Thankfully though, there was no grand mal.

We stayed at home all day until 7:00 p.m. when Malachi and I went to the store to get a few things. Then we had a good time staying up until 10. We watched Extreme Makeover Home Edition, talked to John's parents for a while, and then did dishes together. Those things with the grocery shopping and getting ready for bed equaled the three hours that we had to keep him up. He's been very excited about staying up late and getting up early, we'll see how excited he really is at 4:00 a.m. when John gets him.

Tomorrow's test will be very different. It's only going to be 30-40 minutes long and they want active and sentient brain activity so he will be falling asleep at some point. He also won't be so restricted. He won't be able to move around a lot, but he won't have to redo parts of his test because he moved. The Dr. should get the results from the MRI tomorrow, best case scenario is that there's no change. I don't know when he'll get results from the EEG. Last time we did a short EEG like this there was no seizure activity on the test. Even when we did the long test there was no seizure activity. So we'll see if they can find anything this time.

John missed work on Thursday and is going to miss part of the day tomorrow, but we'll bring him to work when we leave the hospital. Malachi's not going to be in school in the morning but we're going to the Valentine's Day Party at his school at 2:00. We still don't know if he'll be going to school on Tuesday. We have much to discuss.

We'll let you know how tomorrow goes.
