EEG Test Results
There's cause for sadness and cause for hope. The results still came back abnormal, which is very discouraging despite all the encouraging signs. We were hoping that we could exhale a bit after so much anxiety, but alas, we have something to worry about for a while it seems.
The reason for hope is that it looks as though there was a slight improvement from last week. While I'm sure the neonatologist that gave us the results would be upset that I'm quoting him (because we have yet to meet with the neurologist who seems to think that making us wait a day is a good idea) but he said he wouldn't call this latest test burst suppression like the last one. However, it still did some of the same things and this week is a little more reliable than last week. Again, we hope that the improvements continue and Karsie naturally fixes the problem, but we're getting a little more scared.
We meet with the neurologist tomorrow and he will tell us more about the readings. We will update you as soon as we can thereafter. Please continue to keep Karsie in your prayers and pray for her little brain to fix itself soon. We could really use a break.
