Abby's Journey Archive


Tomorrow Abby has an electroencephalogram scheduled. She has to stay up until 11:00 PM tonight and get up at 4:00 AM tomorrow morning so they can make sure she falls asleep during the test and get a good study from it.

This test is to help determine if she can stop taking the anticonvulsant drug Keppra--she's been on it almost from the beginning, first to control the original seizures (of which she has only had 3 total), and then as a preventative post-surgery, since any brain surgery can disturb the brain enough to make it seize.

Keppra is a well-tolerated drug, especially for young patients like Abby, but over the past few months our doctors have asked us often when we are going to get her off of it.

Thanks again for your prayers!
