Some light reading
I read this book over the weekend and it has a lot of helpful information in it for anyone who wants to know more about epilepsy and the available treatments. It was written by three people at Johns Hopkins, one of whom is the neurologist we will be seeing tomorrow. It's written with parents in mind, so all the technical information is very well explained and there is a long chapter that talks about surgery options. I should stress here that we still don't know if Evan will be having surgery and there are some more tests that have to take place before it will be determined if he is really as good a candidate as is suspected, but we are researching all options.
