As I have alluded to in earlier posts, I have been experiencing some family problems. I am extreamly sorry that I have not been posting news stories as often as before. I am hoping to get back into grove as soon as I can. Thank you for your understanding.

Here's the news:

No need to apologize, Mickie.

Let us know if there is some way we can help.

know anything about mesial temporal sclerosis; atrophy of the hippocampus or hydrocephalus? My hubby has epilepsy. It's been under control for years. He's had a cluster of siezures; highly unusual for him. He's having a very hard time recovering, also very unusual. I'm having to take a crash course in neurology. I'm gleaning what I can from the internet and the library at MUSC, but I feel like a fish out of water.

To top it all off, the doctor that my hubby has had for 18 years is leaving. So, we're waiting for another doctor in the practice to pick us up. I feel like beating my head into a wall.

On, a brighter note I managed to keep my GPA at a 3.6 and our daughter loves having daddy at home all the time. So, it hasn't been too incredibly bad. It's not the diagnosis that kills you, it's the waiting for the test results. :lol:
