Our little Reese has turned into Sleeping Beauty. She started taking naps while we were on vacation, after getting back her naps became more and more frequent. And for the past 10 days or so she has been sleeping about 20 hours a day. After no luck at the Dr (they thought I was crazy, and put her on Amoxicillin, to get shut me up... didn't work). I knew something was going on... they told me she was probably just growing, or tired from the trip... and kept putting her off. Finally, on Monday as her awake time became more groggy I brought her to the Blank Children's hospital ER... they took it very serious and have been GREAT to work with! After running some tests they admitted her to the hospital and have now done several blood tests, a CT scan, an MRI and an EEG. We have gotten normal results from everything (but the EEG, we are still waiting on) She is being a little trooper.
This morning she asked:
"mom, are we home?"
"we can just pretend"
Today the ISU softball team came to visit. We will keep you all updated.
Wanted to let you all know her EEG came back normal. We have visited with the pediatric neurologist... and he is puzzled as well. They have a whole "new" list of tests now they are running, she had to give 20ML of blood and some urine. She again is a strong little girl who didn't fuss too much while they "dug around" in her hand (since both arms have already been used up this week) to get veins to give enough blood.
Today has been a sleepy day. Yesterday was a better day and I kind of got my hopes up. Today she has been REALLY drowsy and has only been awake for about an hour so far. Thank you all again for your thoughts and prayers. I will continue to update you on Facebook and this blog.
