The 24 hour EEG

Abby endured another test this week. The difference between this test and all the others is, we had to take this one home!

Numerous electrodes were attached to Abby's head, measuring and recording brain waves for over 24 hours. We were hoping it would "catch" all the seizure activity she has been having, both the grand mal and the newer, startle seizures. Although the previous week Abby had over 15 seizures, she did not have any while she wore the electrodes, except for a possible startle episode.

Now we wait for the neurologist to review the information.
