Today I am thankful for the things I can't explain. I have mentioned before that my middle son struggles in life. We have known since he was a baby that something was wrong and he has many tests done. After nearly 8 years we had resorted to testing for learning disabilities(from the urging and support of a teacher) because it seemed nothing else was wrong, yet he has poor skin, is always tired, does very poorly in school. Out of the blue I got a call from a Neurologist saying he had a referral for my son to have an EEG and it needed to be done as soon as we could. It was scheduled for the next day and we went in. Just a few minutes into the test the doctor stopped and without saying a word began making calls. I am not sure I will ever get the look on his face out of my head. A doctor with 25 years of experience looked scared...I cannot put it any other way. He took about 30 minutes explaining to me what the tests showed and what we would need next. Last night I found out that my son is having seizures, not physical like you think of a seizure but inside his head. He has been doing it for 8 years with no one ever suggesting even the thought of it. I'm not sure why that doctor decided we need one since we hadn't been to the doctor in months but I am thankful for a step towards an answer. We will be hopefully having a CT scan on Friday and then be able to start a treatment plan. For the first time in his life my son may be able to function like a normal child!
