Mom update

Hi all, here is the latest update on Mom. She was seen by Dr.  Sanford Levy, neurologist, of North  Shore Medical. He put her on an anti-seizure med and ordered an EEG (brain scan) and MRI. We will go back to see him on May 6.

Dr. Sanford says that often in patients Mom’s age the cause of seizures is a small stroke. the MRI will show whether or not there is any scar tissue that would indicate a stroke.

The anti-seizure med will make Mom tired for a while. She is understandably low, so any visits/phone calls that “jolly” her up will be great right now.

We could not get appt. with an MGH neurologist until June FYI, even when Dr. Heist’s office called.
