Today was Logan's Doctor's appointment with his Neurologist. I was telling her about all of the seizures he has been having and how he has been sleeping so much since he came home from the hospital last Tuesday.
The doctor on call at the hospital did increase his seizure meds but by only 50mg in the morning, so I was not sure why he was sleeping so much.
Dr.Maller told me it's because he had really bad, long seizures and it will take him a little while to recover. Day by day he is feeling better and acting like himself again. I asked her if she could do an at home 24hr EEG, She said let's wait and see what happens and if he has more seizures then she will order one. His last at home EEG was November of last year.
She did increase his Trileptal from 7.5 to 9.0ml twice a day and his Lamictal to 150mg twice a day. We go back in 3 months for a check up.
Amazingly when he had blood work done to check his levels they are still a little low meaning she could have increased his meds alot more. But she said she wants to do it slowly. Because the last increase was on April 14th.
I asked her why??? Why all of a sudden he is having more seizures and they're getting worse and they're changing??
She said sometimes that happens, sometimes they increase as the child gets older or they get better and in Logan's case they are getting worse.
Dr. Maller and the hospital agreed that he had some kind of infection they just don't know what kind that caused the seizures to happen. He has had many infections in the past and no seizures. I wish there was a crystal ball I could look into and find out why?
