grand mal seizures" that come with convulsions, biting the tongue and horrendous side effects. Ben's seizures are commonly known as "silent seizures" or Absence Seizures. Just falling forward marks a seizure for Ben.
For Ben, if I understand the information from the neurologist, we need to manage his seizures. This involves finding the correct medication at the right dosage without too many side effects that prevents the seizures from happening. I am not sure how long it should take to figure this all out, but Ben is still having seizures at home and at camp, during therapy or while sitting at home. He has had multiple bumps to the head and just this week, a bad skin scrape after a face plant to the concrete.
The doctor is responsive and changes are being made. But of course, I wish for a quicker fix.
