We were then discharged from the hospital at around 8:30am and headed down for the PET scan and to once again be taped* down to the table for the EEG. They only had to add an additional 4 electrodes to her head for the PET scan EEG but she had to stay taped down until the recording was over. Though she seemed more traumatized with these 4 than the original 28 they put on her the day before. She was then injected with radioactive tracer isotope and then recorded for 30 minutes on the EEG. All the electrodes were removed and she was then sedated for the PET scan. She did absolutely wonderful with the sedation. She was groggy when we left the hospital and we carried her back to our housing where she took about a two hour nap. She woke up happy as can be.
We then decided to drive over to Windsor, Canada for a late lunch...it is only a few miles away from where we were at. No problems getting into Canada but coming back into the USA was another thing. To make a long story short...the Department of Homeland Security picked up the radioactive isotopes in Sophie's body and after about 30 minutes we were given clearance to leave.
We then met with Dr. Chugani the following day.
