Update on Baby Monkey

So, while the questions pour in, I figured I’d give you an update on Baby Monkey.

He had another “episode” last Saturday morning.  We took him into the neurologist on Monday and the two that we’ve seen can’t seem to agree on a treatment.  One wants to put him on anti-seizure medication.  The other says he’s too little and that he’s not convinced it’s a seizure.

So…next Monday and Tuesday (5th and 6th), he and I are checking into the hospital.  They will sedate him and do an MRI, then they will hook him up to the machines for 48 hours to do a 48 hour EEG.  We are hopeful that this will give us some answers.  If it happens again before then, they will put him on the medication to cover all the bases.  I’m hopeful that won’t happen.

For now, he’s fine, though, and continues to be my happy-go-lucky little Baby Monkey.  That’s the good news and that’s what keeps me going until we get some answers.


  1. I am glad that he appears to be he happy-go-lucky self. That has to be a good sign. Hopefully he won’t be scared in the hospital…I am sure the nurses and staff will spoil him rotten but I know I would be a little worried about it. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and Baby Monkey through the tests. 🙂
