Stage One Set

May 12th 2010

Stage one is set.  The next steps in my treatment will begin on May 24th at 8am.  I will check into the hospital for a video EEG.  I will be there for at least 3 days, during which time I will be constantly connected to an EEG monitoring computer and being video recorded so that any seizure activity will be captured on the system.  I will have 48 EEG leads on my head and those wires will attach me to a computer and I will have enough length in those wires to get out of bed and go to the bathroom, no further.  At least 3 days where I will be confined to bed by wires which will record all the electrical activity in my brain while we actually hope I have seizures so the doctors can determine the location in my brain they originate from.

Sounds fun doesn’t it?  Well that depends on what I bring with me to do and who I spend it with!  I can sit there and do nothing and be bored, or I can spend 3 days connecting with people.  Who might I meet?  Who is going to come across my path in the 3 days those wires hold me there?  Might I discover that those 3 days serve a purpose other then finding out what part of my brain my seizures come from?  I will only find that out when I get there.  Right now I know stage one is set and I plan not to allow being stuck in bed by those wires to derail me from the purpose of connecting to people to pray.  Stage one seems like the perfect opportunity to do that.
