A week of tests

Harri is glad to be home after a week of tests. Harri is seeing a new neurologist, who has asked for a series of tests so recommendations for further treatment or treatment changes can be made.

Because the neurologist ( Dr McConnell ) works out of St Vincent's Hospital at Kangaroo Point, Harri was admitted to an adult hospital for the first time. On Monday he was fitted up for a sleep study, Tuesday he was off for a MRI, Tuesday night Harri was fitted up for a 72 hour EEG. Most of the results will take 3 - 4 weeks.

Whilst an inpatient we were visited by every specialist they had to offer, just going over the case looking for anything that may have been missed, and offering some valued advice in several areas.

Harri could not wait until Friday night to come home, have a bath and wash his hair.

This week Harri will be off to school camp Wednesday - Friday, a very nervous few days for Kim and I as this will be the first night that we have left Harri with anybody overnight since his injury in 2001. I am sure Harri is up for it. He seems excited.

Regards Matt

  1. Wow, what a busy time, hopefully Harri can unwind at school camp and create lifelong memories. Hope you and Kim can catch up on some rest and not worry too much. Cheers
