Long time no post...

It was quite an eventful Christmas for my family and I. We traveled to Finland to visit our friends over the Christmas and New Years holiday. It was a spendid trip and we were able to tour around the beautiful country for nearly 2 weeks.

One of our worries going into the trip was that the stress from jet-lag might trigger seizures. So before leaving, we asked Dr. Dean (Epilepsy Foundation of NC) her recomendation on the best way to deal with the change in schedule. She told me to keep the same medication schedule regardless of the local time. Being that Finland is 7 hours ahead of the US East Coast, it was a bit difficult, but not impossible. Thankfully it worked and I did not have a single seizure on the trip!
