Prayers for Megan and Ry

Hey there ladies. Megan needs our prayers. Here is what she posted on FB

"Ry is in the hospital as he started having seizures yesterday afternoon. He is doing well now - on Ativan and stable but they're definitely not febrile seziures, so the neurologist is coming by this morning to consult and run an EEG and maybe an MRI".

her update a few minutes ago is that Ry is having an EEG at 1 and then they will talk to the neurologist. He is doing pretty well, no seizures since 1am when they put him on the ativan. and he's generally squirrelly and wants to get out of bed.

So just keep them in your prayers and send postitive thoughts their way.

Oh no! How scary!

Thanks for letting us know Jess. I haven't seen Megan on here in forever. Many prayers coming her way.

Thanks for the update, Jess - sounds like things are better than initially thought. Hopefully it was just a freak one-time thing, and that it doesn't happen again. But, if it isn't, it sounds like the doctors have some good plans in place.

I just checked Megan's page - here is the update.

***
Yay! We're getting discharged today! The results from the overnight EEG will take a few days to come back, but the neurologist felt from what he's seen so far that the seizures are a result of Ry's autism and that they have a decent chance of recurring, so Ry's going on a low dose daily med. He chose one that isn't supposed to have any cognitive or behavioral side effects which is good considering Ry already struggles in those areas.

We'll be doing more research later and we have a follow-up with the neuro in 2 weeks, but for now we're just so glad to be going home!

I also saw just now that her little girl has a 103.4 fever, so hopefully it's nothing and it goes away soon, it's the last thing they need to deal with.

So glad they get to head home! Hopefully the fever resolves itself quickly. Thanks again for keeping us updated.
