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.

Re: Dad had a seizure
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.
God BLess

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...:angel:

So happy to hear your dad just needed his meds adjusted, what a relief! I hope he continues to get stronger!
Thanks for keeping us posted!

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.
