Managing Second Thoughts

Last night, Spike went seven hours without a seizure. The night before, he also went several hours seizure free. During those periods, I wondered such radical surgery was really the right answer. Maybe, if we could just hold on for a few years, he would outgrow the epilepsy like so many other kids.

Sitting here now I realized something I should have thought of before. Yesterday, Spike had 69 seizures. That's more than most epileptics, even many with refractory or medically uncontrolled seizures, have in their LIFETIMES.
