Cannon's EEG

Cannon had what the Dr's think was a febrile seizure Oct 23rd. So his Dr made an appointment to have an EEG and since I can't explain exactly what that looks like I took these pics. Cannon did a good job. He was not happy about someone he doesn't know touching his head and wrapping him up like a burrito. He did better one we got his passy out.

The nurse said he needed to be awake and then go to sleep for them to run the test properly. Luckily it was his nap time so she turned out all the lights and turned some lullaby music on and a loud fan. ( he's used to that) he finally went to sleep and was sleeping really well. About 2o minutes into his nap the nurse says " okay we're done, go ahead and start waking him up I need his eye to be open and him be awake." He wasn't happy about that either. The nurse finally took off all the little wires on his head. (he did enjoy that) She used a warm wash cloth with baby shampoo on it and massaged his head. We didn't hear a peep out of him during that part. :) Finally it was all over and we got to go eat lunch. He was fine from there on out. The nurse told us that if he was in any danger that she wouldn't let us leave and we would have had to see a Dr. So now we wait to hear from Cannon's Dr with the results. I'm very optimistic about the results and figure we probably won't have anymore problems. We'll keep you posted.
