Re: What to expect at epilepsy center
Most of those clinics allow friends/family to be there. So that would keep one element with him. If he has any favorite "object" or picture in his room bring that so he doesn't feel in the middle of nowhere. Depending on patients mobility they have common space in a lot of the clinics to visit, read books, (try and stay out of your room!! in other words).
Having you there/not there most likely WILL have a bearing. If you are there he will be more stable that if you were absent. I guess I am asking, as would a doctor, how do you want the results? With you absent, tripp MIGHT have higher stress, possibly anxiety (is that a trigger??) that may or may not cause seizures. You can't be there 24-7. You can visit in the evening of the test days and see how he is. That may calm down brain waves (interesting to see if it has an effect).
I know when my friend was in having us (friends) there helped her (as I quote her) "from going crazy". We also brought in "REAL food" that she wanted to hug us for doing.
