EEG results—NORMAL! Hooray! The lady I spoke to said I had normal awake and asleep patterns with no epileptic activity. As I had hoped, the episode I had back in July must have been a fluke. Now it’s time to wean me off the anti-seizure meds. After that, I will be medication-free! This is a huge step for me, so I’m very excited!
Also, last Thursday I saw Dr. Sacks for the first time in person since he found Trudy. I could not stop thanking him [or crying]—happy tears of course! He, Sue (works in the office), and my mom were all teary-eyed, as well. He literally saved my life, so it felt amazing to thank him in person. After surgery, Dr. Anderson informed my family and me that if the cerebrospinal fluid/pressure inside my head had gone untreated, it would have been a really bad situation. You can guess what could have happened….thank GOD for Dr. Sacks! He is such a humble man and said anyone would have found Trudy, but the fact is he found her and knew it was a problem that needed immediate diagnosis.
I’ll end on a positive note, though. We have a new member in our family! My sister gave birth to another beautiful baby girl, Shea Elizabeth. She was born Friday afternoon (hence the reason I didn’t have time to blog with EEG results—sorry about that). How cute is she?! I cannot get enough of that perfect little mug.
