Here is an update from our neurology appointment this morning… The doctor walked into the examination room and began to ask questions about Anne’s history – and after about 5-10 minutes of his thorough questioning, Anne began to have one of her “episodes.”
The doctor said, “well look at that, she’s having a seizure.” It was one of her longest yet – 3 to 4 minutes – and the doctor took thorough notes through it all. He said it looked like a left-sided partial seizure. He prescribed medication, scheduled an EEG, and now we’ll add neurologist to the long list of doctors that we see regularly :-)
Anne’s seizures have been very inconsistent, so the fact that she had one WHILE THE DOCTOR WAS IN THE ROOM – was a miracle – and a direct answer to many prayers.
The good news is that they appear to involve a small area of Anne’s brain, are relatively mild and were diagnosed early enough to prevent future damage – at least we pray that is the case!
Thank you for your prayers!!! -kathryn
