Ben was moved out of the ICU today and into the EMU (Epilepsy Monitoring Unit). He is still sleeping almost uncontrollably, which is not a bad thing since he continues to struggle with headaches and nausea when he’s awake. The bleeding in his brain is causing him much pain. But we are thankful that the bleed has not gotten any worse.
Now we wait for him to have seizures. I cannot explain how difficult it can be for us…waiting for Ben’s brain to begin firing improperly. Sitting in a hospital room with nowhere to go, not knowing if or when Ben’s seizures will start. Not being able to DO anything to start them.
Please pray that we won’t have to wait too long. At this point, it seems as though the method of diagnosis is almost more challenging than the seizures themselves.
