Update on Abe
Abe has started having seizures every time he wakes up now. So any time he is awake that is what he is doing. We have started giving him Ativan around the clock and Diastat still when needed. We have decided to try Orapred (prednisolone). He will get high doses of this steriod for 7 days in hopes of getting control over his infantile spasms. Side effects are throwing up and irritability because of the high doses. Usually you have to wean from it but since Abe is on Cortef daily we will just go back to his regular dose. We will take him to see Mo and Dr. Holt next Wednesday to discuss our next move with him.
