Heading to Club Med for the night ....

Peanut had two episodes of head drop seizures at school this morning, so I went and picked her up and brought her home. The neurologist said they are most likely not infantile spasms, because she's 6. They start in much younger children he said.

We go in tonite, for an MRI at 8am tomorrow. She can't be NPO (without food) for 8 hours before anesthesia due to her metabolic disorder and hypoglycemia. So we get to go in today and hook up to IV's until the morning.

The neurologist is concerned as to the reason for the seizures to have just started now, when she's never had then before. And there are more than one type happening. They are all originating from one specific spot on the brain, so he wants a close look at that spot.

Unless something is glaringly obvious on the MRI tomorrow morning, we will discharged and have a follow-up appointment with the neurologist soon.

I hate sedating my Peanut, she always wakes up screaming and miserable. Never mind the IV start, which is a nightmare every time. Ugh, I wanna throw up.

Please pray the stay goes smoothly with no shocking results!
