Dom was tested...

for seizures.

I took him to a neurologist because of the problems we have been having with his behavior. She ordered a few blood tests (including drug testing). He thought it was gross that he had to pee in a cup. I told him that I hope it's the last time he has to.

This is him. The electrodes and leads were placed and glued onto his head along with this knit cap to keep everything in place. He's awake he just has his eyes closed.

The guy is getting all of the wires together and placing them in a sleeve so that they don't get tangled. Dom has to wear this for 24 hours which meant he couldn't go to school that day.

Which meant that he was stuck with me all day.

They put everything into a little backpack and locked it so that no one will tamper with it. He also had to sleep with the pack overnight.
The Doctor asked him to blink and this is what happened when he did (see the longer squiggly lines). I told him we needed to use it as a lie detector test.
This is the next day when it was being taken off. I had to take him at 7:20 am and then I took him straight to school.
I should be getting the results back soon.

Until's what the gas prices are in my neck of the woods. They have been this price for several days.

Are your gas prices going down at all?

P.S. My (I mean Miah's) cat a boy. Go figure.

Mine are down to $2.09, the lowest I've seen them in years.
I get nervous when I have to pee in a cup. It's difficult to do it on command.

Wow...that looks intense. Best wishes that everything ends up being okay.

Wow! That looks like some pretty intense testing! Hope you get some good results soon. Well, no matter what you find out, it's a starting place.

Gas is going down here. It's not as great as your prices. I paid $2.28 today which is a good price for our area.

Funny thing, Tattoo being a boy. We have a cat....Rita. Hubby told me Rita was a girl when he first brought it home. One day, hubby was holding Rita like a baby in his arm and I said, "Honey, I thought you said Rita was a girl?!?!" Yes, Rita had, uh.....testicles! People are often confused when they hear us telling Rita he's such a good boy! LOL

I hope everything turns out ok.
But dont lie to him about peeing in a cup. I have had to do that so many times for jobs I have lost count! Even FedEx made me do it!
I got gas 3 days ago at $1.89! Go Jersey!
