Sorry to keep everyone in suspense. Jacob's doctor's appointment went well. His medication was increased and his pediatric neurologist felt that his EEG next Wednesday will either show a crazy pattern simply because of the structure of Jacob's brain or it may show the beginning of Infantile Spasms. He said that Jacob is not showing any sign of the Spasms otherwise. So basically, he may be clear of them or we are way ahead of them. His other seizures are to be expected because they come from areas of his brain that were damaged from his stroke. The doctor said that these areas are not functional so the seizures are not causing any further brain damage. We have to work towards controlling these seizures with medication...
