Dear Son Medical Update-Back to the Hospital
Dear Son goes back to the hospital tomorrow for some long term EEG monitoring. We'll be there for two or three days.
Hopefully, they'll figure out what is causing Dear Son's pain. He continues to cry out and has a particularly hard time leaning back. Dad gave him a bath today and leaned him back in the tub (Dear Son has a hydraulic bath lift that leans you back slightly.) and Dear Son yelled out in extreme pain. It's very frustrating when your child can't speak and tell you what is wrong. It's been really hard on me hearing him fuss and not being able to help him.
On a better note, I asked Dad to take him last night and I got a full night's sleep. First one since Thanksgiving Day when I brought him home. I even had to set the alarm clock. Imagine that. Dad on the other hand, was exhausted. He said he was up all night and then moving him around all day when he cried out. I think he was pretty glad to drop Dear Son at home tonight.
We'll see Ped Ortho Doc in the morning and then go to the hospital after that.
