The doctor team from the IBRF (International Brain Research Foundation) is coming later today to do their quarterly assessment on Ryan. Aside from the standard poking and prodding, Ryan is hooked-up to a qEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalography). This gives an electronic rendering of Ryan’s brain activity in both wave and mapping forms.
It’s nerve-wracking waiting several weeks for the results. It takes the amount of time for the team to quantify the results since a ton of information is gathered during the session. I do my best to push it out of my mind. Still, it’s always in the back of my mind weighing on me. Weird, I’m both anxious to get the results and, at the same time, don’t want to hear the results. Stress… so much a part of my life. It really sucks. Big time.
Many might remember the results were fairly encouraging from April’s qEEG. If not, just read my post Scary Good. That should bring you up to speed quickly. Oh, how I hope for a similar outcome this time around.
Now, back to today. What this means for Ryan is I’ll need to accelerate his schedule this morning. I have to strike a delicate balance between providing him therapy and not exhausting him. I want him as alert as he possibly can when the tests are performed. With this in mind, I’ll do everything but decrease the duration and intensity to around 25% of normal.
On a completely different topic, please take just a minute or two to vote for Yes, Grace Rocks! in their campaign to win a grant for their charity. This organization has supported Ryan, in many ways, right from the beginning. It would mean so much if we could give something back (I rarely have this opportunity). It’s so simple. Just click on this link to go directly to their page and click on Vote for Us Today.
Currently, they have around 530 votes. Let’s see if we can make this number surge.
