THURSDAY - JANUARY 29, 2015

  • 11:18 am CT AFTER SURGERY UPDATE:

     Better news this morning!  Heather has shown some progress throughout the night! Her EEG report for last night only showed about 4 episodes for the entire night as opposed to the 7-8 per hour on yesterday.  The low drug level of her Depakote was probably a contributor to these episodes.  This morning, we have been able to get the Depakote up to a level that is theraputic for helping to control seizures!  Her breathing has improved and she is doing all of the breathing but at the lowest setting. The plan is that she may possibly come off of the ventilator tomorrow...CONTINUE READING
