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.

Real Questions

So, we’ve been doing pretty well here at My Real Life.  I’m averaging between 40-70 hits a day with a few days that have gone over 100.  So, although I don’t know who is reading, I know that quite a few of you are!

I do get questions, from time to time, about my family and my life.  People read the blog and then are curious about other aspects of our lives that I haven’t gotten around to writing about yet.  Some people just have general questions about me.

So, this weekend, I’m opening the blog up for questions.  If you have a question about myself or the monkeys (or non-personal questions about Real Man), you can e-mail me at  I’m going to give everyone until Sunday at noon to get their questions in.  Then, I’ll respond on the blog.

I’m excited about this and hopeful that people participate.  No question too big or too small.

So, let’s see whatcha got!
