Wife is in the OR now getting leads put in for a "stereo EEG". After she gets out we're going to be stuck here in the hospital bored to tears for several days while they try to trigger and capture some seizures. Expect this will take a few hours. Any word y'all can put in upstairs is appreciated.

Got to see her in recovery for a while. Very sleepy still but her sarcasm and wit are firing on all cylinders. STill need to get her into a room so we aren't done for the night yet. No idea why they don't have one ready yet.

The process of trying to trigger seizures for recording won't start till tomorrow assuming they get her meds to her on time tonight. Doc thinks we have a chance of being on the short end of the time estimate (a few days vs a couple weeks) given what he's seen so fingers crossed.

The seizures finally started today, with three somewhat big ones early this morning after a long night of enforced sleep deprivation. Cutting meds cold turkey and having electrodes in your brain apparently can make them worse than usual. She's now drugged and resting to give her head and body a break, but they want to try and capture at least two more before we can leave.

So far, all three are where we wanted them to be so that's a good start; hopefully that will continue to be the case as it makes the least invasive surgery a viable option. The holiday weekend will cause us a bit of delay but per the docs we are tentatively planning on leaving the hospital Tuesday.
