A CT-scan for Benjamin

In the last blog, I wrote about some of our children we are worried about. I wrote about Benjamin, a 3,5 month old baby who has convulsions. We were advised by the pediatrician, to take him for CT scan of the brain. So today we drove to Mbale (1,5 hour drive), because in Soroti is no place where you can do a scan like that. Benjamin is a super baby to travel with; he mostly slept....... didn't cry at all, we had even trouble to wake him for feedings. Good for travelling, but it is not normal for a baby........ 
Deborah, our nurse, came along, here she is waiting for instructions in the room where the scan will be taken.
They lay the little Benjamin in the machine, they already had given him a cannula and later they injected the contrast fluid. Benjamin didn't wake up during the whole process... Even when he went in the machine, he was just sleeping and didn't move.. a model patient!!
we got the results, there was nothing found in the scan what was abnormal, they advised us to find a pediatric neurologist, and they are only in Kampala... so that will be our next move...
Poor little Benjamin....
