Logan's 5 weeks old

Today we spent at the hospital having another EEG done on Logan.
We will find out the results on Friday at the Neurologist's office. He did really well. They measured and marked his sweet little bald head with a red marker. Then, they applied 25 electrodes to his head with skin adhesive, some sort of paste, the electrode, and then finally taped each one down. It was an hour before they started the test, then the test ran for an hour. Here are some pictures of some of the steps. Jason wanted to make sure I got a picture of him in his straight jacket. He did so well to have to go through it again.

So why did he have to have all of this done? I'm glad you jumped into the blogging world. It's like the only way I keep in touch with people these days!

I guess I will have to work my way back until the day he was born. He had a stroke and then had some seizures the day after. It was done to check for seizure activity. I will get his birth posted and give a more detailed update. I'm new at this blogging thing.

Welcome to the blogging world! Those picture are amazing... so many wires it could almost be hair. Crazy! It looks like baby Logan handled it all like a trooper though! He's absolutely adoreable, Megan.

Megan, I had no idea that Logan was even having problems! How is he doing??? I hope that those tests will give you the answers you need. He's such a cute little guy!

P.S. My friend Kim, who is in the Waukee ward has a little guy who's about Evan's age. He had a heart transplant when he was 2 weeks old. The past few weeks, he's been in the hospital and had a stroke last week. He's doing okay at the moment. If you want to check out her blog and ask her any questions, here it is www.scadlock.blogspot.com. They've been through it all and have lots of advice.

I'm so excited that you're blogging, it looks great! I love the new pictures of Logan. He is so cute, even with all the wires hooked to him! He is such a good baby I'm surprised that he needed a straight jacket.
