Originally posted 2014-11-02 00:49:03. On the last day of the EEG testing and it had gone so well…but wait, there is more. So the technician was scheduled to be here around 9am so I wake Dusty up at 8:30am so that he could take his medications and be ready when he got here.

I am to remain at home. My biggest issue is my son. Normally the moment someone in our house gets sick it is a given he gets it. So fingers crossed this is just allergies or a cold or something minimal. I do not meet criteria…

Ultrasound treatment for Epilepsy

Originally posted 2019-01-31 09:10:18. In a first-in-world clinical trial, researchers at The Ohio State University College of Medicine are studying how well focused ultrasound surgery works in adults with a specific type of epilepsy whose seizures are not controlled by medication. Up to 10 adults with the “medically refractory lobe focal onset” type of epilepsy will be enrolled in this study.

There is a reason we are here, just not sure yet why.

Originally posted 2014-05-01 16:47:33. Have you ever wondered why you go through certain things in your life? Why you may suffer from events, diseases, or whatever you have gone through? Yeah, me too. As I have reached my fourth decade of life I look back and take accountability of the things that have gotten me here. I look at the things both of my children have had to go through being biracial, to the illnesses,…
