Cluster free for a month!

Post by ShilohsMom » Tue May 13, 2014 9:35 am

Since starting Zonisamide, Shiloh has had 2 seizures, one on April 19th the other on May 2nd. While I hate the fact he still has those stupid things, I am so thankful that he didn't cluster and a fair amount of time, at least for him, has gone by. Counting my blessings! If this continues he may be able to get those 2 teeth removed that he broke months ago during a seizure.

So glad to hear you are both doing well! I'm with you. It's always awful to see a seizure but when they are isolated it makes it a little more tolerable. We are still in our holding pattern of one a month or so and I'll take it :)

Great news!!!

I agree on the much as we don't want them to have ANY, having a single one here and there is much more tolerable than the clusters :)
