Wow, it's been a busy last couple of days. I wanted to write and give you an update, I know most people have been sitting on the edge of their seat waiting for this update.
So without further adieu, our Owen update:
Owen's surgery was scheduled for Wednesday August 22nd. When we walked down from the 6th floor to the pre-op room, everyone on 6 all wished us luck and did the cross your fighters sign, as we walked the hallway. You know that you have been there to way too long, when everyone does that. We were blessed to have the same nurse watch Owen during surgery, Erica, she even remember the names of the 3 animals go along during surgery. We had 3 neurosurgeons talk with us, they all know us and we had a nice chat before we gave Owen Great big hugs and kisses.
So, I know your next question, have we seen any seizures or spams? Well yes we have seen some spams, but it has been very minimal compared to the hundreds that we used to see. We are very hopeful that they are just residual and that it's just the brain healing. Owen has been resting very comfortably and sleeping a lot. Mike and I are okay with this as we want to make sure he gets better. He is on a feeding tube only because we want to make sure he is eating. Mike and I have commented as we took our nightly walk that this surgery seems different, Owen looks great. We are very hopeful for the future.
Friday was a very hard day for Owen, he had a seizure that was BAD! It was 45 minutes and emergency drugs were having struggles stoping it. Thanks grandma for supporting our Owen through this. Afterwards they hooked him back to an EEG. The EEG showed no other seizure activity. Yeah! But it showed abnormalities on the left side. They don't know what's going on... :(
It going to be a quiet weekend for Owen we are planning on making Owen comfortable and just relaxing. We are excited to report, Owen has now gotten a tooth :) Owen turns one year on Sunday. Wow, what a year!
