They ended up having to put arm immobilizers on Will to keep him from pulling out any of his lines. He wakes extremely agitated and is having bouts of nausea and vomiting. The good news is the grids are placed, and we are one step closer to recovery. Everything is going according to plan, including what has been discovered on the EEG grid placement.
The team placed about 100 electrodes on his brain, and so far, the data seems to be showing exactly what we expected, although he is having even more spiking and abnormal activity than the doctors expected - about 1 spike per second. Will's neurologist described what he saw on the EEG in Will's left parietal and occipital lobes as "a whole lot of nastiness." This is confirmation to us that we are doing the right thing, and we have come to the right place. By the end of Thursday they will know how much of his brain they want to remove, and we fully expect that the surgery will go forward on Friday.
