Memory Monday - EEG

I thought, given Owen's recent health status, that these pictures would be appropriate.
For those of you that don't know, Owen is currently in the hospital. Last wednesday, the 11th, we noticed that Owen had a fever. Because of his central line, we knew we had to go to the hospital to be admitted. When we got to the hospital he was fine but soon after his temp rose and he had a febrile seizure in my arms.

This situation brought me right back to January 2010. My grandmother's funeral was that morning. We went home and received a phone call that scared us to death. Owen had RSV and the nurse called to tell us that he had a seizure and that he was having heart arythmias. We rushed to the hospital and were greeted by two of his primary nurses (even though their shift was over, they stayed to be there with us when we got there).

These pictures were taken when Owen started to recover from RSV. He was off the ventilator and was stable enough to look into the seizure. He only had one seizure. They did an MRI and an EEG and could not find any reason for him to have had a seizure. They decided that it must have happened due to RSV. We were so relieved.
