This post is going to be a little more serious than the last one.
Several nights ago, Dave noticed that Jacob was making some odd head movements. He would nod his head up and down and then side to side. When asked what he was doing, he replied that he was just spelling words in his head. That might make most parents laugh or feel proud, but it scared me. That reply was just too similar to the one he gave us last May after his petit mal seizures.
We have not been extremely vigilant about his anti-seizure medicine lately and that could explain the problem. Still, it is scary to think of what would be going on in his brain if not for for the medication. That is what has me up before 5:00 in the morning posting to my blog. He was lying next to me asleep (yes, that is a subject for a whole different post) and making humming sounds in his sleep. I am sure he was simply dreaming, but the fear and the worry have me reading in to every little out of the ordinary mannerism or sound. I don't know how long it will take for that to finally fade away. Perhaps when you are a Mom, it never does, no matter what your shild has been through.
So, Jacob is scheduled for an EEG on Monday to see what activity is going on in that little brain of his. I am sure it is nothing serious - after all it has only been six months since his surgery. I will, of course, post the results!
