2014 day 5

Thursday, January 16, 2014

I didn't get a chance to blog on day 4. I spent day 4 and most of day 5 at the hospital with my son while he got an eeg and an mri. Both tests came back normal however the doctor thinks there is something wrong with the left side of his brain. My son started having numbness on the right side of his body, light headiness, dizziness, and headache. we took him to see a neurologist when he was 14 and the doctor told him it was all in his head. That he is making it up because he has a brother with an illness. That we need to take him to see someone in metal health. Well on new years day we found him face down on his bedroom floor and were told he had a seizure. The new neurologist says that the spills he was having for the last four year were also seizures. Yes I said last four years he stopped telling us about them because the doc said he was crazy. Today the doctor did a test on his hand where he writes a number while my son has his eyes closed and he has to tell him what he wrote. Mark can do it on his left hand but not his right. So now he is on meds and has to have a 5 day eeg in the hospital.

So for two days my eating has been a little off. I didn't track at all today. So here is to better days. Thank God for tomorrow.

    I'm on the SP homeschooling team that you are on. :)

    I'm so sorry that first doctor assumed it wasn't a real problem! The poor guy!! I'm glad the tests came back ok. I pray you find an answer to help him soon.

    Take care of YOU while going through this stressful situation.
