And done. For today

So if you aren't familiar with the test, an EEG basically measures the brain's electrical activity. They glue 26 electrodes to your head and watch while you sleep, see a strobe light, and blow a pinwheel. To increase the likelihood of seeing seizure activity, you must only get four hours of sleep the night before the test. 

The pinwheel exercise sure looked like it triggered some activity during the EEG but we won't know for sure until Friday. Either way, we are most likely looking at a medication change. 

And I'm happy. Happy to know we might be able to make life a little easier for Lainie, easier than the last year has been.
