New Medicine is a Success

Monday, March 23, 2009
Kennedy's seizures were getting worse and worse. She was having more and more episodes. I had put a call in to her Neurologist to find out what he wanted us to do. At first we were told to increase her Keppra to the maximum dose allowed for Kennedy's age and weight (2ml/2 times a day), however, that did not work - no suprise there. Her seizures were not letting down. So then Dr. Michelson prescribed us a new medication to take in conjunction with her Keppra. So far so good :) Kennedy is now taking two medications to control her seizures - Trileptal & Keppra. The medication was prescribed on Friday and since then Kennedy's seizures have begun to decrease and as of today she has only had one episode!!!!!

Also, Kennedy and her cousin Brennan had a photo shoot on Sunday at The Picture People. The photos turned out great. As soon as I figure out my scanner I will post them for all to see.

Still waiting for March 31st - well keep you all updated!
