And, we wait...

When we arrived at UCLA Mattel Children's around 11:00 this morning, admissions wanted to turn us away because they didn't have beds. While in the admissions waiting room, Jenelle's neurologist called me on my cell phone and told me to go to the ER to get admitted from there. Dr. Shields wants to get her EEG ASAP, and wanted them to know this wasn't an elective admission.

So, right now we are sitting in the ER waiting for a bed. I feel horrible, like we're using valuable resources just to get admitted, but at least the ER is not busy right now.

Justify Full
The only good thing (if you can call it that) is that since we arrived in the ER, Jenelle has had 8 seizures, the longest going 4 minutes (in the last hour). I just hope she keeps having them for the EEG, if we get admitted.

So, for right now, send seizure vibes, but send "get a bed" vibes first! ;) I'll keep you posted.

I hate that she is having such a problem with seizures, but hope she does it while on the EEG! It always feel weird for me to hope for seizures during the testing, but it's what we need sometimes.

I hope you get a bed quick!
