Medical Update III- Home


Dear Son was released from Big Academic Medical Center yesterday. The EEG was much better, as expected, so he could go home. While it still had some abnormalities, it was much improved. I can now breathe a sigh of relief, even if it's only a temporary improvement. Ped Neuro Doc suspects the antibiotics are the reason for the improvement. Regardless, it is still good news.
Dear Son is resting well. We are glad to be home. It is a good feeling that he should be able to start school on Thursday, provided he continues to improve. Ped Neuro Doc did a really nice job overseeing Dear Son's care. Despite the fact that they were low on techs, he managed to get the EEG completed so we would not have to make a return trip later this week.
I am happy that we have a lot of good news to celebrate. Thank you for all of your prayers and concern for Dear Son.

Great news on the being home and hopeful of going back to school - and the EEG being done for you as it suited you.

Good luck.

Glad to hear he is home, I hope his system regulates so that when he goes off the antibiotic he won't relapse! I bet he is thrilled to be back home and not being poked and prodded as much. I know I didn't enjoy it when I had my appendix out and all they mostly did was take my temperature frequently.

Best wishes,
Karen
