I'm happy to hear your Dad is doing well so far with the electrode placement. I assume they have him on the big gun antibiotics? He may also have a bit of swelling because the brain is being "irritated" and "invaded". I had wondered if he had had this done already or not. We haven't seen you in awhile!
Hopefully you will get the answers you have been looking for. It was a year ago yesterday that Katie had her electrode (burr hole) surgery. I looked at the clock just now and she was out of PICU and had a bunch of seizures already at this point. The last one was around 3 or 4 in the afternoon, and it was a 3 minute Gran Mal. After that, they IV'd some AED's and we were done. She had the electrodes removed on Wednesday afternoon and we knew by Wednesday around dinnner time that all was a go for the resection to follow, in June.
I look back and wonder where I got the strength and stamina from. I know our faith had everything to do with it, but the human body is amazing when adreniline is added. It was like being on auto pilot and doing what needed to be done.
I wish your Dad well...keep the faith...ask questions, NO question is ever too minor...
Wishing you and your Dad all the best!
