This morning Giovanni was admitted to the EMU on the Neuroscience floor at Albany Med. The decision came to admit him after some questionable episodes of bizzare behavior (not his typical seizures) so his doctor at Boston Children's Hospital gave us the choice of being admitted there or going to our local medical center where his local neurologist is. We obviously chose to stay local, and given the snow storm we had today, I think we made the right choice.
Today was a tough day for all of us. It took them over an hour to get all 30 something leads attached to his head so that they can monitor his brain activity. Since he is attached to all of these wires, including an EKG, someone is required to stay with him at all times. My husband wasn't able to make it down today because of the weather, so I haven't been able to leave his room all day. Despite all of this, his spirits are good and he is still smiling.
As of right now they are planning on keeping him for a few days, but we are taking it one day at a time. I will keep everyone updated. Thanks for your positive thoughts and prayers!
