We did an EEG today because she is at half dose of her seizure medication taper and they wanted to see what her brain was thinking about that. If the results are good, we will continue the taper and she will be finished with her meds in 2 more months. If the results are not good, we get to stay at half dose and hope for no recurring seizures. Either way I am pretty happy.
This picture is Kendal in Feb 2007, before the seizures.
This picture was in April of 2007, after her first EEG - see the little node thingies still stuck to her chest?
This next picture makes me sad. She looked so horrible and miserable. This one was in July of 2007 - at the height of her ATCH therapy. She gained so much weight and the steroid effect was horrible. She truly was a miserable 2 year old.
This one is Sept of 2007, after ACTH and after the seizures were over.
This is a picture of an EEG in April 2008. She was a pretty good sport this time around, all the other times she kept yanking the wires off of her little head. It took 4 techs and then Matt and I holding the poor thing down to get the job done! After they would wrap her head in gauze to hold it all in place, she would still try to rip it off!
