Robert came into the hospital last Tuesday.
I am pretty sure today is Monday and, yep, we’re still here.

Anyone who has spent any time at all in the hospital or visiting anyone in the hospital or knows anything about hospitals knows there...
Robert had an appointment with the neurologist Tuesday afternoon.
It is a day later and I am still processing what happened. Still kind of spinning, actually.
We have had a rough few months trying out a new med
and fending off an overwhelming amount of congestion
(which I see as an oncoming pneumonia train).
This bilingual poster, courtesy of the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles
, is well worth sharing. It's important to know it is okay to talk about epilepsy, it is nothing to fear and neither are seizures. It is okay to help and these posters let us know exactly how we can help.
Robert has had bronchitis at least four times this year (yep, we added one more
) and even when he hasn’t been “officially” diagnosed with it, he has a great deal of congestion. The past few months he has been sleeping in on the weekends until 11:00, 11:30 – even noon. Through the week...
|At least Robert is happy when he's eating!|
We have been trying the “new” seizure medication, in varying dosages, since February. Robert’s neurologist thought we should try Trileptal so, in February, started him on 300 mg in the morning and evening.
