Admitted to hospital

After having tests done (EMG & nerve conduction studies) and seeing a neurologist on Friday, he decided I need to be admitted to hospital for a few days in order to take more tests. Uncertainty and fear are both understatements of how I am feeling as I am packing my hospital bag, about to leave my boys for a few nights.

Will update once I know more, but in the meantime, here is a little info about where I'm going:

"The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN), Queen Square, is the UK's largest dedicated neurological and neurosurgical hospital. Celebrating 150 years this year, it provides comprehensive services for the diagnosis, treatment and care of all conditions that affect the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nervous system and muscles. Services include specialist neurosurgery, a brain tumour unit, the Hyper-acute Stroke Unit (HASU), an acute brain injury unit, the National Prion Clinic, a pioneering neuro-rehabilitation unit, the UK's first interventional MRI scanner, the largest specialised neurosurgical ITU and the only neuromedical ITU in the country. Together with its neighbour, the Institute of Neurology, it is a major international centre for research and training"
