There is no real news yet which is good. She is stable and in regular room. They never even started her EEG yet. Not until 1pm today. The EEG staff stay just so late in the hospital to do them unless they are called in STAT and apparently because she wasn't having full tonic/clonic seizures she wasn't really an emergency. She also got bumped off the rotation today for an MRI so that will not be until tomorrow.
Do I sound a little crabby and impatient? Yes- I am because they are sitting up there doing nothing but "monitoring" her and giving her phenobarbital while I'm taking meds to try and keep the baby from coming. They also don't even recognize her drop attacks unless Rick points them out to them. Apparently it's normal for a child to be sitting in the bed watching tv or coloring and then suddenly slump over?? Unless they increase one of her meds to see if that will hold her then it's sort of like giving the med while she is there and sending her home blind (without knowing if her regular meds will hold her which will end in us having to turn around and do it all over again). I even wonder why we are going to put her through another MRI with sedation if it's only going to show the " leftovers" of a stroke and not tell them much more than last time.
Please continue to pray for Olivia that we can get some answers for her and get her stable enough to come home without having to turn right around and be admitted again.
