Dad had a seizure

I just got off the phone with my sister. She and my mom were taking my dad to the hospital. He had a seizure, and my mom called his neurologist, who said it could mean that the brain tumor is growing back. Please pray that he'll be okay.

My prayers are with your dad. I know how frightening it can be, but pray the tumor has not grown back and it was just a seizure. And that can be controlled with meds, if necessary.
I've had a brain tumor too, so know how scary it can be. You dad is in my
thoughts and prayers.
Please let us know how he is when you can.

Re: Dad had a seizure

I too will pray that it is not the return of the tumor but just a seizure that can be controlled with meds. I know it is hard but hang in there. ((( hugs))) JanMarie

Well, Dad is home now, and thankfully doing well. He had a CT scan and an MRI, and everything looks okay. Apparently his dilantin level was too low. So the doc upped his dosage. Thanks for your prayers...

Re: Dad had a seizure

Great news!! Always love hearing positive things here.
I too take dilantin and they are forever checking my blood for the levels of it!
I've never had a seizure, but they want to prevent any.
Glad your dad got to hear good news.
Faith
