A Day of Tests…and now we waitArticle posted on Monday, September, 28th, 2009 at 6:50 pm
Today we were scheduled for and MRI and EEG. Neely’s Neurological team isn’t sure why she had the seizure. There are several theories. Without a doubt, this is a complication of ADEM. It is possible that her existing inflammation (which has been slowly improving) took a turn for the worse. This could also be a recurrence of ADEM (meaning we would be headed down the same path we went in May) or this could be the first presentation of Epilepsy, which ADEM patients can develop as a result of the condition.
We are in hopes that the MRI and EEG will give us a clear indication of the cause and help us to determine the appropriate next steps.
