We are here....

We made it to Houston! Our flight this morning was very very very early and Renzi and I both were having a little anxiety, so needless to say we did not sleep much last night and had to get up at 4:45 this morning. Isaiah did great on the flight, so that was a great start to the day!

We got to the hospital at 9:45 and were in our room and hooked up to the EEG monitor by 11:00 a.m. This hospital is incredible and it was so nice to have everyone aware that we were coming and ready for us. Our previous experiences at another hospital were not so great for us, so this was almost a treat.

We just met with Dr. Willafong, who is Isaiah's attending physician. He seems very nice and knowledgable and he informed us that we are not going to be giving Isaiah any more of his seizure medicine to see if we can induce a seizure so that they can monitor it on the video. Other than that, we are in our room for the time being just waiting. 

I included two pics of Isaiah is right after they hooked up all of the EEG cords, he was so tired that he just passed out. The second is one of him in his "turban" after he woke up. He doesn't seem to know that there is a large amount of cords sticking out of his head covered by some white goo. They put all of the cords in a ponytail like thing and there is one piece of tape that is making his eyes a little squinty and Renzi and I keep joking that he looks like "Kung Fu Panda." (Kung Fu Panda is currently Jackson's favorite movie. Next time you see him you should ask him to do Kung Fu for you. It's hilarious).

So, that's where we are right now. Thanks for reading and thanks for praying!
Renzi, Lee Anne, Jackson and Isaiah
