In preparation for Heath's sleep-deprived EEG on Tuesday morning, he was ordered to sleep from 8 p.m. to midnight the night before but then to stay awake from midnight until his appointment the next morning. Jenny stayed at the house longer than usual to help keep him awake, and then I woke up around 4 a.m. to make sure that he wouldn't fall asleep. He wasn't allowed to consume any kind of caffeine, and he also thought that he wasn't allowed to eat or drink, so he was pleasantly surprised when I allowed him to do so.
At 7:30 a.m. we made our way over to Trinity, and this is what he looked like:
After dropping him off at home and giving him the go-ahead to get some sleep, I was just in time to make it to my Bible study at church. Shortly after lunch we headed back to the hospital for the MRI.
We were told that it would probably be Friday before we knew any results of the tests, so we all just took advantage of a fun evening, knowing that there wasn't a thing we could do to rush the results. Heath and Jenny enjoyed celebrating their six-month dating anniversary by having dinner at Olive Garden. Keaton had Awanas at church, and Haley and Kelsey had a swim meet at their high school, so Harris and I went to that for the evening. Haley is a swim team captain this year, so we as parents have lots of extra responsibilities. We also get to help out with things at the meets such as timing the events and hosting the dinners afterwards. Even though it's added a lot of busyness to our fall, it's been a great distraction for us, and we've loved watching both girls compete in the same sport and even on the same team. That's the first and last time that will ever happen in our family!
