EEG Update

Back from his EEG. He did so well, thanks for your prayers. He was such a trooper and made it very easy on us! I was certain while we were there that he was having them in his sleep still. Actually having the opportunity to just watch him sleep I saw a lot of movement...still hard to tell if it was seizure activity or just regular sleep twitches. The Dr. came in this afternoon and told me he had to review 4 hours worth of the EEG to even find one discharge...and that discharge was only 1 second long. This is very good news and more than we were expecting to hear. He said the only other discharges (abnormalities) he saw were in sleep transition and that they also were very brief, about 1 second. The Dr. was very excited about the report and seemed pretty amazed that it could look so "normal" after being so bad as recent as January. We are rejoicing in this as it came as a big surprise to us. We will keep treatment the same for now and hopefully he will just continue to do better. I will post pics later, but wanted to get a quick update on here while I had a minute on the computer.
