Doctor Updates

We heard from Deacon's pediatrician today and he received the results from the hospital on both tests.

The good news: the MRI came back normal! No tumors and the brain development is right where it should be for his age.

The not-so-good news: Like we suspected, the EEG was irregular. The doctor didn't have a lot of information, but it looks like seizures and the part of the brain being affected is the occipital lobe. The occipital lobe is in the back of the brain and processes visual information such as colors, shapes, words, and numbers. Whether there is a connection to his glasses, I'm not sure...

Other than that small bit of information, that is all we know for now. They can't put him on any medication until they find out more and we won't find out anything until he has his appointment with the neurologist on Feb. 17th. We also have our meeting with Early Childhood Intervention on Feb. 1st, eye specialist on March 4th, and hearing test on April 13th, all at Texas Children's Hospital.

I'm thinking they might need to reserve us our own parking spot for all the visits we will be making.
