Seizure Free and Off Tegretol

Quick Blog Note : Today, Jessie was given the go ahead to go completely off of her epilepsy medicine. So by summer, she will no longer be on Tegretol. Horray!!!

Before when she went off of seizure meds, she was still having seizures, but we didn't recognize them a such. We thought that she was having gastric issues. We are fairly confident this time, that she is seizure free and all will work out great.

There is never 100% certainty, but her neurologist at Cook Children's and us are ready to give it a go.

Happy Easter. Cris

Hi Jessie
Hi My Name is Jenna
You are a brave courageous fighter, and an inspiration.
I was born with a rare life threatening disease, 14 other medical conditions, and developmental delays.
Tis a lesson you should heed,
Try, try again;
If at first you don't succeed,
Try, try again;
Then your courage should appear,
For, if you will persevere,
You will conquer, never fear;
Try, try again
who invented fire? some bright spark

Very pretty, my eight year old is having Her surgery this morning at ucla med center by dr mathern. It's incredibly difficult particularly because it's only been eight weeks since her first seizure. I'm just searching for a support group. Regards, Greg Beebe.
