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.

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

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.

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.

Oh no! How scary!

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

Here is the latest update:

So, I met with the neurologist. Ry's EEG was normal, but the dr. agreed that 3 seizure events of such severity in such a short period of time not brought on by illness was definitely not normal. So, we're staying here another night and in the morning, he's going to run a much longer EEG.

If that comes up abnormal, he'll run an MRI and we'll be putting Ry on daily seizure meds as it's probably an autism thing (autistic folks often have childhood-onset seizures). If the EEG is normal, we'll probably still run an MRI but if that's normal, too, we'll go home with a couple doses of immediate-acting meds. If he has another seizure, we'll give him those meds immediately and then take him in to the dr. and get put on daily seizure meds. If he doesn't have another seizure, then it was probably just a freaky one-time thing.

So...whew...more tests tomorrow and hopefully some sleep tonight for all of us!
