I wanted to give you an update on how Emma is doing.
We went to the neurologist appointment.
She asked a ton of questions.
She did not answer ours.
She thinks Emma will do well on the medicine.
We are glad there is medicine that is effective.
But they don't know why.
My daughter in law Melinda said, even if Emma did not have
a grand mal seizure and they learned she had the little seizures (absence seizures) they would have put her on meds for those. ..the little ones....She said, they don't even want you to have those. Which I didn't really understand because they were so unnoticeable. But something is going on in her brain that should not be going on. So they like to calm it down with the drugs.
It made sense to me. Thank you nursing student Melinda for being able to explain something we asked three different ways to the neurologist.
Emma has been seizure free for eight days! She is almost to the full dose they want her on and she will be relieved to get there. The side effects are not terrible.
We are hoping and praying that the medicine works as expected.
Thank you all of the love and care and thoughts and prayers.
