We’re still waiting for seizures. Ben’s spirits are great, despite the fact that his headache refuses to let up. He’s been in the hospital for over a week. I’ve tried everything I can think of to trigger his seizures, including picking fights and pretending to be depressed. So far, no seizures.
Ben can’t do much. But he did manage to lose his cell phone in his tiny hospital room. He left it in his bed when the nurse and I changed his sheets. Unfortunately, the sheets were thrown into the laundry chute along with thousands of other linens, and the phone was on low vibrate. His replacement phone arrived today, and should be hooked up and ready to receive calls tomorrow.
The doctors keep trying to assure us that the seizures should start soon. We pray that they will. I joked a while ago that this might be like the Eagles song Hotel California: “you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.” Please pray that we can leave soon.
