My son just got out of the hospital yesterday. He was only there for about 27 hours, for a constant EEG/video monitoring of his seizures. We got the info we needed; there's no cure for a physical abnormality, except for brain surgery. Hoping meds will at least lessen/eliminate his big seizures.
But this is a "diet" blog, right? So this post is about how I handled my diet in the hospital.
He had a seizure within an hour of being there. One of the huge massive seizures that can kill. He did turn blue.
It was downhill from there. I did eat the broccoli slaw, fruit and yogurt I took BUT when he got his dinner, I was so hungry that I got a BLT (but with a salad!). Drank lots of milk and juice because it was free, but when they started telling me that they wanted to do a sleep deprivation study on him on Tuesday, I knew I needed coffee. That goodness that was free too! I must have drank 15-20 cups of coffee, from mid-afternoon on Monday until we got home on late Tuesday, just to stay awake AND to keep him awake.
Home. Slept hard last night. Whew!
(So did my kid: he slept about 12 hours!).
So far today, I've had a diet protein drink and a drinkable yogurt. Guess I should go eat: we have about a million eggs (ok, seems that way) so probably will make scrambled eggs for us for lunch. Tomorrow he goes back to school.
And I'm back to no caffeine.
Yet another delay - I honestly started back on my writing, while preparing to get the house ready to sell and monitoring my son's epilepsy ... then it happened. Another lump ...
