Sleep Deprived EEG

I've actually scheduled this post as I wont be home for most of the morning. I am taking Brodie into the Austin Hospital for a Sleep Deprived EEG. He wasn't too happy about having to stay awake all night. This kid really enjoys sleeping in nowadays. Something he was unable to do for such a long time. At least he has a friend who will be joining us and helping him stay awake.

Anyway, we have to leave before 7 am to hopefully get there for 8:30 am. The perks of living in the country. Just as well it's only meant to be about 1 hour and 20 minutes away. Although I have no idea what the traffic will be like. Thankfully we are going on Eastlink. Perhaps that might make things easier for us. It's a toll road so some research is required on how to pay and the cost. Since it's for Brodie he can pay (yep I am that mean) and he can pay for the parking too (yep still a mean Mum).

Let's hope that this EEG will show the neurologist what is going on in that complicated brain of Brodies. It would be nice to know why he keeps getting these facial spasms. The Neurologist said that it might be Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. It will be nice to know if that is what it actually is. Poor Brodz suffers a lot when he has them. 

Wish us luck with the test and the travel. Oh and finding parking!
