My Update

Stan took me to Hays yesterday for my appointment with my neurologist.  She was pleased with my recovery so much that she has taken me off of one of my morning medications.  YAY!!!  The road to a less drowsy life has begun! I admit that just the thought of extra electricity being added on, scares me.  The first time, I definitely felt the power turn on.  This time since I was used to the feeling, I barely felt it at all.   Because I am handling the electricity so well, she added on a much larger dosage of it.  In addition to the extra height of power, it is now lasting longer.  It forces electricity into my brain for 7 straight seconds then it takes a 5 second break followed by the 7 second force, etc. It will take almost a full year before I am at the highest power.  Already, my seizures have dropped from being full fledged as they used to be to just a twinge in my eyes that lasts for 2 or 3 seconds.  I no longer forget where I am, who I am, etc.  PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!  Those are very scary events to endure.  Since everything is going so well, I do not return to my neurologist until July.  At that time, higher dosages of electricity will be added and additional medicine will be dropped.    My doctor expressed to us that I am doing "fabulously well".  Can't beat that!

Thanks to all you who have been praying and continue to pray for my recovery!!!
