Yes, fingers crossed. Hope the docs figure out the problem rapidly.

One to four layers of SAK is (usually) best for me.

If you have absolutely nothing better to do, my YouTube channel is awlways an option:

Totally forgot about this post, it’s just been so crazy, come to find out she has seizures, everything from before kinda just worked it’s way up to them, she can’t walk on her own, so the walker and cane was a waste, to get around the house she has to be escorted, anything out of the house and she has to be in a wheelchair and strapped in because if she has one she’ll fall out and hit the floor, so far she’s had them just about everywhere, she’ll just stop and drop everything then start letting loose, she’s off and on for about 5min, and three times she’s come out of one knowing nothing, not know who I was or the kid, but then about 5min later she’ll look at you like what’s the problem? The first time she did it my heart dropped and I really didn’t know what to do, I recorded it to show her and when she saw the kids face she lost it, she’s on a Rx for it but it takes time to kick in, like upwards to over four weeks, and I have noticed that the type of seizure has changed, because she was out of control an slapping around and pulling her hair, but she’s calmed down to just jerking around, although she head butted me the other day, ouch! But she’s still having about 10 a day,, so if the Rx kicks in some more or if she needs another only time will tell,,
  The two major side effects of the Rx are drowsiness and dizziness, and the doc switched one of my Rx with it also and I must say WOW, they are! So we kinda cut back from what he wanted us to start at in order to climb up and get used to it, cause I must say I get knocked!

If it's Gabapentin, I'm on it for nerve pain but it was originally something prescribed to epileptics to prevent seizures.  It makes me groggy most of the time and if I'm working I have to drink copious amounts of coffee in order to function.  If I'm not working or I skip the coffee I will fall asleep for an hour or more around 3 PM.  It's as if someone throws a switch and I fall asleep, in bed, on the couch, or sitting at my desk, it doesn't matter.  I had to reduce my dose in order to  get anything done during the day.  Any way, I'm still praying for you all and hoping for a good resolution to this when the doctors figure it all out.  Glad the youngest is still around to help.

That sounds like it but the name of it is Keppra, the Mrs actually has the gabapentin, I think she was given it for nerve damage, but I don’t think she’s taken it, I could only imagine taking that and what she’s on, she’d probably be knocked clean..
