We started Vigabatrin

I guess Rob and I were both dragging our feet about starting Evan on Vigabatrin. It arrived 10 days ago and we finally gave Evan his first dose. The package sat unopened on the kitchen counter for days and yesterday we took the plunge. We wanted to wait until the craziness of the holiday died down a bit because when Evan gets excited it sometimes triggers seizures. So, now that things are closer to calm, I guess we're out of excuses.

Yesterday morning we gave him the Vigabatrin and he only had one small seizure that evening. This makes us hopeful, but it's too soon to say anything about it's effectiveness yet.

So, keep your fingers crossed!
