Another tonic-clonic seizure today. Same scenario: in her sleep, wakes her up, makes her very cranky and she's whipped for the rest of the day. We're seeing the neuro in about a week and a half, so we'll see where we go from here. That's 2 in about a one month stretch. I'm not particularly happy about them getting closer together. One of her neurologists always said that seizures have a way of training the brain to have more seizures: like they find a path to make the bad connection, and they keep going there, and creating more ways to get there. That's what I'm nervous about. This coming appointment should be very interesting.
A beautiful girl with severe epilepsy and developmental delays as a result of a prenatal stroke. Underwent a left hemispherectomy on July 11, 2008. For additional history, here's the link - http://hollisbrainsurgery.blogspot.com/2008/07/bit-of-history.html
