Jess had an appointment with the neuro yesterday. I was supposed to go in with-husband and jess and thank you and take her. I was sick to my stomach all morning so husband took her. I was shocked when he offered!! I emailed the info to him and he did a good job. It does help that this neuro is incredible!! He listens, is a riot, the kids LOVE him, and when he answers he tells you WHY. I wanted a migraine preventative on top of her keppra. She won't be able to go to public school with migraines at the level she is having. He said no because at this point she needs a keppra increase and it should help. Also the beta blockers can cause depression in adolescents so if we can avoid them we should. For husband to have this info coming out of an appointment is incredible - he really hates dealing with the docs and if I am there will not pick up what they say at all. She is to have another EEG, but we have to wait to schedule it because he is hiring a new person to do them. I refuse to have one done by anyone else but whoever HE chooses. Jess is on Midrin for the migraines and it knocks her out, so 5-8 migraines a month are just too many for going to public school. We are going to add magnesium as it should help with the migraines if she can tolerate it. Tyler was SUPER upset at not going in to the city. He had 2 asthma attacks because he was so upset. I managed to get my system under control and take him to the bookstore and to run another errand. I got the book he wanted greatly reduced because teh only copy was ripped. At bedtime thank you hugged me and told me I was "a delightful companion" !! I thought that was pretty cool considering I made him take a bath, wash his hair AND get a haircut!! So hopefully Jess will tolerate the magnesium and the increased keppra. We are increasing VERY VERY slowly (another reason I like this doctor - he looked at the chart to see what problems we had getting her onto the keppra and factored that in to the dosage schedule!). Anyone in Oklahoma who needs a child and adolescent neuro, pm me. This guy is top rated and deserves it!
