Neurologist 6 month check up

Today was our 6 month check up with Dr. Deocampo. The last time we were in was for a follow up from the EEG (both in May). He would've started weaning Joey off of the Keppra if it weren't for his wife prescribing Focalin for Joey's ADHD-inattention.

Today, Joey weighed in at 53 lbs and is 49 inches tall. BP was normal.

Because there have been no staring spells, he is good for another 6 months and there is no EEG required in May. We are not weaning Joey off Keppra until we try Focalin5 and make sure this new med/dosage doesn't cause breakthrough seizures.

All in all, I felt it was a great visit and a good step in the right direction!
