results from the video eeg

we finally got the results of the video eeg that was done in january. the neurologist said that her eeg is abnormal which means her brain was sparking alot. so in other words she either was having seizures during the eeg or her brain has the tendency to have seizure activity. so either way we need to continue medicine and we go back in 3 months for a follow up. they also ran some blood work to check her kepra levels and check her electrolites to see how they are. im just glad that we finally have answers and that i wasnt just thinking i saw a seizure when i actually did. also im glad that i did go ahead and get the g tube put in because her doctor even said that shes never seen a child not take medicine but when the nurses who are experienced in giving meds cant then something has to be done. i guess it was the doctors first time ever having a g tube placed because of failure to take meds but what ever works to keep seizures at bay.
