Epilepsy Monitoring Unit – Home Now

It took me long enough to have a seizure, damnit, and WOW! I had 8 of them. They want me to come back for the memory study, but that will be done on an outpatient basis.

It’s good to be home. It’s good to be back with my family. But I’ll be happier when my back stops hurting.

I don’t remember my last few days in the hospital. The seizures must have hit close together.

The study showed that my seizures are, indeed, generalized. They aren’t localized to one area of the brain or the other. I’m not sure what happens next. I need to follow-up with my neurologist.  But I have a feeling that surgery to get rid of the epilepsy is out of the equation (and part of me is relieved). Still, we know more than we used to, and we’re still getting a memory study done. But it will be done on an outpatient basis.  I know every seizure can affect your memory, so I’m eager to get this done.
