Yesterday we went down to UofM to see Austin's neurologist. The results were good for the most part. There was only one spike that they saw that indicates future seizure activity could be possible. Fever could definitely be a trigger so she urged us to treat any fevers very aggressively and she wants us to give the diastat immediately if he does seize.
He will be having an MRI in August to look at that "spike" a little more in depth. She should be able to see just how likely it will be for him to have another seizure and whether he should be on daily anti-seizure meds. I'm not looking forward to MRI day, sedation just makes me nervous.
Overall, the doc is very pleased with his progress. His language skills have really improved and she was excited to hear he is going to Kindergarten. His right side neglect is still evident though as she put an Elmo to his left and he could see it, but the same distance from his right he couldn't see it. It's weird, his vision is ok but he just ignores things from the right. I just tested it and I walked up from behind to his left and he noticed me right away as soon as I was alongside him. Then from the right I had to be in front of him before he finally turned and said "what." Kind of in a what the heck are you doing kind of "what." That neglect is evident.
In other news, Joe is in Maine this week and will be gone for much of July as they get ready to open a new office. We talk on Skype, the boys think that is the coolest. I think we are going to hit New China today since he's gone. It's not his favorite place to eat but Tommy & I love it! There are small perks to him being gone. No alarm clock at 5:30 is another. ;) Love ya hubby!
Happy July everyone!
