|Hanging with Daddy in the hospital bed.|
At 2pm we went to play in the Child's Life room again. This time they were doing arts and crafts and Drew got to make a painting. I don't think he was thrilled about this, but it came out cute. Then we were just hanging out playing with toys when the neurologist tech came to get us.
This was the worst part of the adventure so far. We had to hold Drew down to put the leads on him. He did not like being held still or having things on his head. Luckily, he went to sleep for the test the way he was supposed to. He also had a spell while we were doing the test. He woke up from a dead sleep by stiffening and then doing the deep gasping breath and turning purple. He was hooked up to the monitor then, it was also being taped, and the tech put a note on the file that that is what has been happening.

Our regular nurse agreed to take the baby low-jack off to let Drew have a shower as long as we kept him in the room. While she was taking his vitals he had another mini spell, he did the tensing and then started to turn blue. In some ways that was another yay, because someone else saw it.
Now, we are just waiting to hear back on the test. We did just get a heads up that it could be tomorrow before we get the results. Though, if that happens we would have to go to the neurologist office tomorrow. So, at the moment we are back to waiting.
We just got told we are staying for another night. The pediatrician in the hospital is going to get an endocrinologist to look at Drew tomorrow too, for the growth issue. We also aren't going to get the EEG results until tomorrow anyways. We still might be in for an MRI, but that won't be discussed until then anyways.
