Day 2, VEEG. Doctors just came around. Her EEG looks about the same as last year I guess. Lots of spikes still and the drops. Not really one area that would be a candidate for surgery, there was more activity in the frontal vs posterior lobe and we don't want to cut there! SOOOOOO, we will now be trying med #7, felbatol. They are letting us start it up at home so that is good, waiting for all the paperwork to get done yet. Felbatol involves 3x/day dosing and weekly blood draws so that is going to suck, but hopefully it will do the job it is supposed to and make her better. Our other option was to continue to increase the topamax....which didn't thrill me as we were seeing less and less effectiveness with each increase in addition to all the behavioral issues lately. Cross your fingers that the felbamate does the job! I think we will choose the liquid form vs the pill form. The weekly blood draws hopefully won't be too bad as now Logan will be going to morning pre-k this fall so I won't be dragging him all around town. I am going to check if the new medical clinic near us can do an early morning lab. That would be convenient as it is on the way to school...then I could just bring Caitlin to school 3x/wk. I already do early AM PT and chiro appts so adding that in won't be so bad. It will be an adjustment doing 3x/day dosing but I am sure we will get used to it. Oh and felbatol also messes with depakote so we get to reduce that too in addition to weaning off the topamax once she gets going on the felbatol. Hoping this does the trick...and glad I get to go home today!
