EEG tomorrow

We will have our first EEG tomorrow at Children's. We will then have a follow-up and first time appointment with an epileptologist on the 23rd. We expect to hear the results then. We have weaned Hewitt off of his zonegran, the 2nd med we added. It has been over a week and we have seen a vast improvement in his speech, motor skills and other things he regressed on for the last 3 days. We are encouraged, and enjoying having him back. We started the wean of his depakote (the 3rd med we added) today. This is the med that has increased the dangerous drops. We feel hopeful about taking this away, but know that it might increase another seizure type. But, it will be one that is less dangerous. This is our hope. Please pray for him that he won't have any dangerous withdrawal seizures from the wean.
