Corina's appointment went really well today. This was the appointment where I had to convince the doctor the situation is serious enough for us to be referred to another doctor who will actually be able to do something about it. I was very organized about it, and presented him with a lovely binder. It documents the time and date of each seizure, the events leading up to it, and what happened with each seizure...all in a fun and easy to read format! It also has her medical history as far as the epilepsy is concerned. Oh, and I had her decorate the front of it, and then made a cute title page that has an especially adorable picture of her on it. It looks really sweet, and that should serve the purpose of reminding the doctors she's a real person so they'll do their best to help her. (I know - I over think things.)
Anyway, he thinks it's quite possible the enlarged temporal horn they found in her MRI five years ago is causing the problem today, and he referred us to another doctor. Thankfully he didn't brush us off or just try to give her medication. I'm just waiting for that doctor to call with our appointment time now. Waiting. And waiting. And waiting.
Corina's having a nap beside me right now. Eight seizures since Friday - the kid is awfully tired. That's hard work.
