Homeward Bound!

Samantha has done a great job of showing the doctors what they needed to see. Such a good job in fact, that we are able to go home tomorrow (Wednesday) morning! Whoo Hoo!!!

So, what did we find out? Samantha's seizures are primarily in the left frontal lobe. She does however have some other 'discharges' throughout the brain therefore Samantha is not a candidate for surgery right now. They will take a look as she gets older or if the seizure type changes.

Here's the good news, her infantile spasms are still gone and her jerky movements are just 'Samantha movements'. Our neurologist felt really positive about the EEG and said it has really improved from the last couple months. The diet has been a positive change and she wants us to remain on one seizure med. Whew! Not too bad for a days work!

We are signing off for the night. Thanks so much for all the positive thoughts!
