(Thanks to Liz H for these adorable onesies!)
Jake ended up staying two nights at Vandy. I was not planning on that. I had packed us up and had one foot out the door when the MD came in and recommended another night. They just wanted to make sure they captured everything they could. Jake did not have an actual seizure while we were there, but the EEG showed increased electrical activity/sparking in the right posterior brain. The MD recommended starting another medication. He said that leaving Jake off medication is not an option because most likely the seizures will increase and spread to deeper areas of the brain and be even harder to control. Jake was actually really good while we were at the hospital. By day 2 he was definitely ready to leave, but overall he was pretty content. Getting all the glue out of his hair is another story. Jake is also still limping. I took him to the orthopedic on Friday and they x-rayed his hip, knee and foot but nothing showed up. I think the limp is worse and it is really worrying me. He does not seem to be in pain, but he is not walking well. If it does not improve then we'll have to go back to the MD. Jake can't seem to catch a break lately.
We would appreciate prayers for Jake and the girls as well as their caregivers. We have been blessed with amazing nurses and doctors, but pray for them as they make decisions for all the kiddos.
Last but not least Emmett continues to get into trouble on a daily basis. I really find him hilarious, and it's so fun to see him develop. Everything is so hard for Jake that we marvel at Emmett when things come so easily for him.
