Because those bright red, tear-filled eyes are already haunting me. They are already breaking my heart.
Tomorrow, she goes in for a 24 to 48 hour EEG. Most likely 24 hours but they threw in the 48 hours for "just in case". She HATES getting the leads glued to her head. HATES it. HATES it. HATES it. It is pure torture for her. You should see the fit she throws for me when I want to brush her hair. Her short little bob cut with no tangles hair. She is very sensitive to people* messing with her head...as you can only imagine given her history. Because I still flinch when her mouth comes close to my arm in remembrance of her biting sprees. So I can only imagine the nightmares that must flash through her mind. They still flash through mine.
We are going in because she had been doing some "odd movements" that look eerily familiar. We upped her medication twice and things are looking much better. But we still have to know what is going on.
* Except for her 8 year old cousin Colin. In which, she would do ANYTHING for him...brush her teeth, lay still during diaper changes, brush her hair, take her medicine, etc. She absolutely adores everything and anything he does. He is the coolest person in the world to her. Colin can you please hop on a plane and be here by 8:30am tomorrow?
