Q - How do you know when your baby's had enough EEG-ing?
A - When he starts ripping hair & electrodes off his head!
54 hours in we had to abort the operation.
Poor Trevy. He was literally freaking out. My mild mannered...super compliant...little monkey had had enough!
And there was no way it was going to continue. Even if he had to pull each electrode off himself! Of which he accomplished with at least two.
Thankfully we were sent home with a removal kit.
We tried to calm & comfort him. I really wanted to get at least one more nap time in. He thrashed & fought until he finally fell into a fitful sleep. Only to wake up 20 minutes later thrashing & pulling at his re-wrapped & hatted head like a crazy man. Or like a baby who'd had enough already!
Sooooo...J & I made the executive decision to go ahead and remove the leads a little bit early.
Trevy was so happy he looked like he was doing the happy dance!
And for the first time in 54-ish hours...he's sleeping. Peacefully!
