Removed electrodes and glue from Sophie's scalp. Thanks to the wonders of technology, she had an EEG that was ambulatory. That meant no hospital overnight. She was hooked up yesterday and sent home with a white mesh turban. Each time she had a seizure, I pushed the little black button on the box that she wore in a fanny pack. She wore it for twenty-four hours and then I removed the sticky electrodes and wrapped them in a paper towel. The little black box went into a larger brown box and the folks at FedEx took it from me. I know it sounds sort of gross, but the phrase brain in a box went through my mind. And Sophie looked a bit like a radical Muslim when she was hooked up (which makes me wonder how many trolls will attack my patriotism, now --)!
A day in the life.
