My name is being used fraudently to ill represent me. Please be cautious of any information you receive with my name. including,,, anything from anyone claiming to be Engi Nowaira online. Otherwise, I will be representing myself in person so that everyone will have opportunity to identify me in person.
My previous drivers license was also stolen. The new one has extra security features on it.
OT-EEG and sleep study Goo
When Megan had her EEG in December they used polish remover to get the super glue and goo from the leads off. This time however, I requested that they not use chemicals on my babies head and told them that I would remove the goo myself.

I tried cooking oil first, and it got most of the goo off her body, but u have to be careful not to take childre out in the sun for at least a few days after.

Then, because I didn't want to risk the oil getting in her eyes, I decided to try mayonaise on her head. It is thick and creamy and shouldn't run all over the place. Thankfully it worked great. Most of the goo is gone. Her hair is very shiny and a bit oily, but after a few washes, I am sure the oily part will be resolved.

I am thankful that I chose to do it myself. The mayo and oil are certainly a whole lot less harsh than the alcohol, polish remover, and other chemicals they use to get the goo off.

Just thought I would share so that if any of you endure the same thing, u have some ideas.

We had the same problem. When we were inpatient in the neuro dept at our local chidlren's hospital they gave us a shower cap that you microwave. It has the shampoo already in it. It worked amazingly well. I was so impressed and it smelled muchbetter and wasn't harmful.

Glad to know there are other options though.

Hmm, I hadn't thought about how to get it out. Both times Donnie had an EEG done we just came home and washed his hair. No one ever gave us anything to get it out, just a wet washrag was all. I haven't heard of using nail polish remover, that does sound harsh though. -Liz

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
That's just crazy that they would even use that. I mean the fumes are enough to make you loopy without considering the other factors.

Good for you for standing up to them about it.

Check with your
doctor first!
