Update on Corey

Well, we made it to Seattle... I have to say the Dr. looked at us like we were crazy driving all that way. They did another EEG with sleep deprivation... only could have 4 hours of sleep... (He is still on a small dose of Klonopin) anyways the EEG came back with nothing on it. The Dr. felt it was probably a mixture of the Klonopin and the Lamictal but he felt that Corey shouldn't have had a seizure after being on the Lamictal 300mg for 5 days so he upped the dose to 400mg... he is to stay at 400mg + the small dose of Klonopin for 2 weeks. Then he is to drop the Klonopin and see if the Lamictal will keep the seizures away. If it doesn't then we will switch to a different medication... and so it goes... I am happy that he didn't have a seizure on Thursday though... :-)
Almost done stitching on Angela's wall hanging... just a little bit to go...
Oh and I got 3 gallons of blackberry juice! (I always take my juicer... and then make jelly/syrup later) and then when I got home my girlfriend came over and we made 9 batches of wild plum jam!


  1. Keeping my fingers crossed the new combination of meds works!

  2. Glad you have a plan of attack. I have been checking in each day even though I am a follower. Wanted to make sure I didnt miss anything! Cannot wait to see what you are making me by the way! I am greedy like that.

  3. I'm so glad you are home safe and sound. Hope the meds continue to work for your son. Blackberry juice and wild plum is good!! Hugs

  4. I'm glad you're back and that you have a new plan. I hope it is the answer for Corey. Hang in there!
