Would appear Wee had another seizure yesterday.

    Not the big scarey shakey ones, just another absence seizure. We've been noticing split second space-outs for a while, but just weren't sure. I hadn't mentioned it to anyone but husband.

    At the existing data meeting yesterday, SpEd teacher said the same thing, and said she's sure she saw a big one yesterday. 5-7 seconds of blankness, followed by confusion, and, shortly after, sleep. There's no question in her mind. So here we go again.

    Of all the people on Wee's team, the only one I've truly disliked was neuro. I think I'll look into finding a new one.

    so sorry to hear that.

    we've personally had a lot of success with trileptal for seizure control, maybe its worth investigating?

    We tried that medication first and it seemed to increase the hyperactivity, but its been several years now. Its worth trying again.

    Hope you can find another neuro soon.

    Sigh...this is going to be hard to pinpoint too. If you are only starting to see them so infrequently, even a sleep deprived EEG is probably not going to catch them. Hope the neuro will just take teacher and mom word and start a medication. Though one would think the depakote would catch him. Hmm.

    Might need a completely different medication. You do need a good neuro on board.

    That is so hard. Catching them is very tricky. Getting the nuero to "believe" just hooooovers. So sorry.
