EEG & Follow-up Appointment

Today Evan had a quick EEG and an appointment with his neurologist, Dr. LaJoie. The EEG looked beautiful and calm with no crazy brain wave action going on. An EEG is just a snapshot of his brain activity during the timeframe of the EEG, but the fact that there were no unusual spikes is a great sign.

After the EEG, we met with Dr. LaJoie, and she was astounded by how incredibly verbal Evan is. He's always been very social and verbal, but nothing like this. The past week or so Rob and I could barely get a word in. We don't know if it's the drugs or if the surgery unlocked something, so we'll wait for the steroids to be out of his system and see. The appointment with her went really well and she was happy with his progress. We'll be back up in NY in a few months for a 2-day Video EEG in the hospital to see the results of a longer test, but we haven't seen any seizures since the surgery and Evan said he hasn't had any. Nothing but good news and we're hoping it stays that way. We couldn't be happier.
