Yesterday, Austin had his EEG in Ann Arbor. He has quite a bit of anxiety about doctors after his experience in the hospital so I kind of kept quiet about it. Thursday night he overheard me talking on the phone with my MIL and just freaked out about going to the doctor. I was very apprehensive about the whole scene because he kept talking about it in his scared little voice. Everything I read about EEG's seemed like it is a fairly easy experience but the sandpaper rub on the head could be uncomfortable.
Austin woke up in an amazing mood yesterday and was just super calm about the whole thing. He traveled well and was even being his crazy self in the waiting room. Once in the exam room he was nervous but not freaked and he had a wonderful tech that put him right at ease. My darn camera batteries had died so I didn't get any pics and they would have been great with all those wires coming out of his head. It was over before we knew it. We go back for results with neurology on June 30th.
I know I over tell this story so sorry for those of you that are hearing it for the 100th time. When Austin was first down there as an infant, we brought Tommy (who was 2 1/2) down with us for the weekend to meet his little brother. There is a giant Big Bird in the one lobby and Tommy walks by amazed and says "look at that big duck!" We got a lot of flak with that story because our 2 year old didn't know who big bird was. So every trip to the hospital we make it a point to visit Big Bird. I had gotten new batteries in the gift shop so you can see Aus and that big duck.
