Hollis goes back to school tomorrow! Hooray! I'm hoping that the routine of school will help her regulate her behavior better. In talking with the neurologist today, he says he sometimes sees behavior problems get worse immediately after surgery, as the child learns her new abilities without seizures. Usually, the behavior issues get better with time. Please, please, please!
