Another round of continuous EEG

She is getting set up for another round of continuous EEG monitoring which usually means overnight. Goal is to assess brain wave patterns and any sub-clinical seizures. I suspect they are doing this to evaluate existing anti-seizure medication efficacy as well as trying to figure out the right brain activity if there is no discernible tumor. It's a messy process involving gluing electrodes all over her head with stuff that stinks of pure alcohol, them wrapping her head in gauze and putting a gauze sleeve over the 30 something wires running from the electrodes to the computer.

Expect a neurologist visit later.
