Another Day... Another Seizure

Scott had another gran mal (or tonic-clonic) seizure today just before 12:00 pm. Fortunately, he was resting in bed at the time of the seizure and did not get hurt. Perhaps the increase in Depakote ER or the new medication, Lyrica, is the cause of this seizure. Hopefully, we will know something more certain when we meet with Dr. Dean on Monday to discuss Scott's drug regimine. No one, including Dr. Dean, wants Scott to take 3 AEDs so the meeting on Monday will provide Scott and Dr. Dean with an opportunity to discuss and determine which medications Scott will continue to take and which one he will stop taking. Please say a prayer that Scott and Dr. Dean make the right decision for his care.

Thinking of both of you and hoping some drug, treatment combination can get things back under some sort of control. Mom
