Seizure Recovery

It's been a couple of days since Scott's seizure. Scott had an EEG performed last Friday and we met with Dr. Dean that same day. Dr. Dean stated that Scott's tendency for having a seizure increases when he is tired or sleepy. She stated that Scott needs to get more and better quality sleep. So we stayed in all weekend and Scott rested. He returned to work today but has turned in early as he is still a bit tired. Hopefully, his new sleep schedule will reduce the chance of him having more tonic clonic seizures.

Thanks to everyone for your continued thoughts, prayers and support.

I am very sorry to hear about Scott. I too suffer from tonic-clonic seizures. I was implanted with the Vagas Nerve Stimulator June 28, 2006. With a minor adjustment after an August 06 seizure, things were great. My doctor was going to begin reducing my meds this summer...That is until 4/22. I was overly tired and at a softball game when it happened. I don't think you truly ever recover from a seizure. I am completely devastated because not only do I not get my meds reduced, I lose my drivers license for 6 months. Being single and living in the suburbs...well it goes without saying. I feel for Scott. Please let him know he is not alone.
