*sigh of relief*

I heard back from the pediatric neurologist. He called me a few minutes after my last post. Eve's EEG came back looking normal! Can you feel the weight lifting!?!? I am SO relieved. He did say that we aren't in the clear yet. Her headaches are reason for concern, and we need to watch that. She will be on seizure watch for at least the next 3 months, and we have a long list of seizure precautions (most of which do not apply to a 3 year old! No skiing for Evie!) We also cannot go anywhere more that 15 min away from an ER with out medication that can stop a seizure. He feels comfortable taking a wait and see approach, and I am happy with that.

All in all, it is the best news I could receive. I think for the first time in a week I might be able to sleep without 15 trips to check on my sweet girl.

Oh, I am so glad that everything is good with the EEG results. I would have called you but, it is really late. I love you and I will talk to you soon.

Oh my gosh Nicole!!!!!! I have been thinking about you a TON the last couple of days, I knew i should have called. I am so sorry about Evie, that is so tremendously scary!
And selling your house?!?!?! Oh my gosh...Washington is so far away. It would definitely call for a Road Trip!

I'm so glad that things are going better with Eve. I've been thinking about you. I'm glad that all news is good. Let me know about Washington! It's so hard not knowing for sure . . .

OMG. I read the other post first and then this one. I don't think I would have been able to sleep tonight if I didn't know if she was OK. It breaks my heart to hear about little kids not being well. I'm so glad it's nothing that would show up on an EEG. I'll be thinking of Evie and sending her good vibes. :)

I hope you'll forgive me, as I just read about what happened to Eve. I'm glad she's okay now, I'll make sure to include her in our family prayers. I am really sorry for being so behind on reading your blog! We're still trying to adjust to having a new addition in our family. But I want you to know that if you ever need anything we'll be there for you. Keep in touch.
