So I took my LO in to his ped on advice from the nurse call in line because he's been sleeping all day. I mean all day he is generally only up for 40minutes 2-3 times a day. He's almost 1. I knew this wasn't normal because he hasn't slept this much since he was a NB. I told the ped everything we just moved to nm a week ago he spent 2 1/2 days in the car which he slept for the entire time and when we stopped at night he went straight to sleep. Could it just be him adjusting to the move (new climate, elevation etc) she said some what but it could be neurological. She had to call the neurologist to see what need to be done. They will either order blood work or a spinal tap and brain scan. Well I'm freaking out. I heard spinal tap and my heart skipped a beat eyes popped out and jaw hit the floor. She called me 30 minutes later to order blood work but they have yet to get enough blood for all test because it keeps clotting. I'm so worried I don't know what to do.
