The struggle continues....
After seeing some improvement, Jack's seizures are going up again in number. He had 10 on Monday and 7 yesterday. We went to see his neurologist yesterday and he feels that the Depakote is the best drug for him. Jack has lost 5 lbs., which is about 10% of his body weight. The doctor felt that his loss of appetite was due to the Topamax. So, we are weaning him off that over the next 4 days and hope to see his hunger come back. He also thought that his paleness was due to the medicine and not caused by anemia. We plan to have blood drawn again today to make sure that Depakote level continues to rise . Please continue to keep Jack in your prayers.
