2015 VEEG - Day 5

Today was a calmer day. Since Evan had a seizure last night there was no pressure or stress about getting the necessary information for a surgical evaluation. Also, because he had a seizure at 10:30 last night nobody had to stay up until 4am!

Evan didn't have another seizure but they decided to still do the SPECT scan. The radioisotope was injected at 3:00 pm and he had the scan at 5:00 pm. It was impressive to watch him lay perfectly still for 30 minutes without sedation. I know a lot of adults who would have trouble with this. The machine zoomed in close to him and rotated.

At this point, we started him on his meds again and hopefully will get discharged tomorrow morning. There is a bit of wild card though because if he has a seizure tonight they will probably keep us another day. We are hoping he doesn't have a seizure tonight but because he hasn't had any medication in a few days we don't know exactly how things will go as he ramps back up.

Fingers crossed for no seizures tonight!

That's one impressive young man you've got there!
By the way, I have to point out that you're giving him very mixed signals- stop having seizures, have a seizure now, no more seizures now. ;)
Love to all of you!
