It's Not a Toothache

We are at the hospital for Ben's Video EEG. Ben had 20 electrodes glued to his head yesterday around noon. The gauze wrap is supposed to keep him from pulling at the wires. I am supposed to keep him from pulling at the gauze. They ran out of gauze last night after Ben pulled it off for the third time.

We cannot leave the room for 24 hours.

It is 6:30am and we have a few more hours to go. Ben's 4th gauze wrap is off and staying off. We've both had just a few hours sleep.

More about the procedure in the next few days.

(And if you are wondering, yes, that is Ben's mad face.)


  1. Ugh. Forgot to say that you can sometimes talk them into taking it of from around his chin...they just pull it up and place it on top of his head. Helps the kiddos not be so aware or aggravated by it. Sorry.

  2. Oh look, if that were a a toothache he wouldn't have those bandages on his head.

  3. Useful info. Fortunate me I discovered your web site by chance, and I am surprised why this accident did not took place in advance! I bookmarked it.
