Update from the neurologist

So just a quick update. We had our followup appointment with the neurology department of Seattle Children's Hospital this week. I thought it would be uneventful and turns out I was right. We met with the neurologist and went over all that had happened in the past few months. In the end Alvin hasn't had a single seizure since the initial surgery. The neurologist now believe that his seizures were caused by spikes in pressure in his ventricles that were putting pressure on the cyst. He believe that we are now done with his practice unless something else happens when we will be referred back.

So overall we are now officially done with the neurology department. Now the next step is Tuesday when we go back for Alvin to have a MRI and CT scan of his brain to be sure things are healing internally correctly and that there is no evidence of excess fluid collection in his ventricles. Once the scans are done we will immediately meet with the surgeon to go over the results and what our next steps are with him and the condition.
