Happy Sleep Deprived EEG Day

Dum Dum (Meant to sound like the weird Law & Order sound that you can't really duplicate while typing).

Playroom at Lynn's House
4:02 am

Jack doesn't want to be awake. I don't want to be awake. Jack sucks his thumb and whines. I suck my thumb and whine. 4:00a sucks. 4:00a is better than 2:00a, but it still sucks.

*** To be continued. ***

Playroom at Lynn's House
4:28 am

Jack playing with balls (no, pervert... not his. The ones of the bouncing and basketball and baseball varieties). Lynn super tired. Jack whining. Lynn whining on her blog. 4:28 am sucks too.

*** To be continued. ***

Kitchen at Lynn's House
4:48 am

Lynn is folding laundry wondering why she doesn't get up at 4:00a every day to get chores done. Oh yeah, because she fell asleep at 1:00amish, Jack woke up at 1:15 amish and Will woke up at 2:30 amish. Just realized that "am-ish" without the dash is amish. Too tired to fix it and typing with only one finger cuz holding Jack in desperate attempt to keep him up.

*** To be continued. ***

Family Room at Lynn's House
5:14 am

Jack is feeling playful. Lynn realizes that a snot sucker may not be the healthiest toy for Jack to play with, but if it makes him happy. She will let him continue to chew it. Oh yeah, fine... call Child Protective Services. Even they will understand that keeping your kid awake takes desperate measures.

Playroom at Lynn's House
5:37 am

Get the crash cart... we're losing him!!!!

Playroom at Lynn's House
6:13 am

Walked into kitchen to nuke pizza for my breakfast. Hey, as long as I've been awake, it can probably be considered lunch time. Re-entered playroom to find Jack face down on a toy. Threw him into sitting position. He is looking at me like "why mommy? Why don't you love me anymore?"

*** To be continued. ***

Lynn's Home Office
6:33 am

Mark is awake and dressed, so signing off to go get ready and then head to the neurologist. Hope Jack forgives me some day, because he is sure hating me now. Wish us luck with the EEG.

*** To be continued. ***

Lynn's Home Office 9:26 pm

Jack's EEG looked great. It is unconfirmed, but the tech said that she thought it looked perfect. Should hear back from Doc tomorrow. Jack came home at 11a WIDE AWAKE. He slept at EEG for 30 minutes. Sure...when you need him to be awake, he is EXHAUSTED... when you are ok with him napping he is awake. Kids suck. But, he is healthy, so just today... I won't complain too much. (Because I was too busy napping myself!)

The End.

Too funny! I actually set my alarm to call you at 4 am, but feel back asleep because I didn't have anyone to throw me into sitting position.

You're all in my thoughts today; I'm feeling confident that the test results will all be negative. And if not, then you can justify the helmet!

I hope it all goes well. Let us know asap. :)

Poor boy, poor you!! I bet he was so confused!! Glad to talk to you today and hear things went well- Thank God!!
I too had set my alarm to call you-but again- no one to throw me into the sitting position or let me play with the snot sucker. I can't wait to give him a hug!

Laura and Homa -- you are both nicer than me. I DID NOT set my alarm to call her at 4 a.m. But then I guess I did my 4 a.m. times with her when she was the baby!

Jounice said...

First this was hilarious! My question though is why was Mark not up with you and poor Jack?

I'm really happy that Jack is going to be ok!

Homa - Are you nuts? I would never set an alarm for 4a unless absolutely couldn't be avoided.

Suz - Thanks for the good thoughts. It was the best possible result!!!

Laura - Calling at 6a was good enough... although I felt bad for how tired you sounded. I think I was pretty perky considering.

Mom - Yeah, I think your middle of the night duties are over. Well, unless we call to have you come over cuz someone needs to go to the ER. Then you're sunk.

Jounice - Thanks!!! And, Mark did the late night Jack junk so I could sleep and do the early morning. It was a trade.

Domestic Goddess (In Training) said...

Amie - Nothing offical yet. Called my pediatrician today, so we'll wait for the call back. No news is good news, right?

Tex - Send me your cleaning bill. Sorry!
