So I'm not sure if it is a good thing or not, but we have been moved to a private room. The reason is that they are now considering Michael to be "infectious" until they rule out Pertussis. Nobody really thinks he has it, but they are trying to rule out as many things as possible. So, we now have our own room with a couch bed instead of the chair (twin) bed. Yah! They will be doing a nose swab soon to check for the "Whooping Cough" soon. (I guess since Whidbey Island had that outbreak not too long ago, they are just being cautious.)
Michael is in the MRI right now. They thought it would take 45 mins - 1 hr. and then the docs would have the results to give us maybe an hour after that. He is also scheduled for an EEG (testing brain waves I think?) later on after the mild sedative wears off from the MRI. We will be seeing the neurologists maybe a couple times today. Strange to say that!
Still a waiting game to see what is going on. On the bright side, he went through all yesterday afternoon/evening and last night without any episodes after getting the "peanut butter balls" (slang for phenobarbital) so we are hope full that the medicine is working on stopping whatever is going on. He wasn't that sleepy so I was able to nurse him no problem. Praise God - he is getting what he needs.
Will update when we know any more!
