Spencer getting "hooked up."
Well, we have arrived at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. We are about two miles from Grant Park where they are expecting close to a million people to descend to see Obama give his speech later tonight. It's been really crazy here today.
We arrived yesterday afternoon and checked in at our hotel. It's about .2 miles from the front door of the hospital so that is really great because we can walk if we need to but they also have a shuttle.
They didn't have a bed for Spencer until today so we were admitted this morning. They have him hooked up to the EEG and have started his IV so they can inject the neurolyte if he has a seizure. We are sleep depriving him tonight and taking him off his meds tomorrow morning. We are praying specifically he will have a seizure tomorrow after 10am and before 3pm and that it won't be a status seizure. It feels weird to pray for a seizure to happen when for years all I've prayed is for him not to have one.
We met the doctor today and he was really awesome. I feel confident he will definitely be able to help Spencer.
So far Spencer is doing great. He didn't enjoy the blood work or getting the IV but he is very much enjoying laying around in his PJ's, watching movies and playing video games. The party will be over when I make him start homework in a little while :-)
Thanks to everyone for your prayers and encouragement. I will try to update you again tomorrow.
