Cooks EMU Again - EEG May Show Slowing - Increase Keppra to 7.5 ml BID


Jessie is back in Cooks Children's Hospital for more 24-Hour Video EEG monitoring. Yep....she's a wire-head again. She is such a trooper and puts up with all the crap like a champ. She gives me strength. She's my hero.

Anyway, the EEG EEG shows sleep induced spikes on the Right Front. I'm not sure exactly what that means, but it's not so good.

Dr. Malik (The Neuro on duty at the EMU this week) bumped up her Keppra again to 7.5 ml BID. I'm really not sure if this stuff is working or not. Would she be having more seizures if she wasn't on it??? Does it make her seizures worse? It's hard to tell.

Bottom line - Her seizures are mild and do not disturb her day that much, but this finger twitching is very disturbing.
