Oh, the fun of trying to keep a child up for the sleep deprived EEG. *shudders* I thought I'd strangle Travis long before we ever got him to the neuro the next morning. But the worst part was keeping him awake once he was in the car! Good thing both husband and I went to the appoint. That let husband drive and me sit with Travis in the back seat and keep waking him up. Hmmmmm. It's been awhile, but we helped Travis stay awake with movies and video games..... and ALOT of prodding and saying "Wake UP!". Did psychiatrist say why he's doing the EKG?? Good luck!!
