24 Hour EEG Results

Tonight we heard back from our Neurologist with Meredith's EEG results. He emailed us "The EEG showed just some slowing, which is not unexpected in a child who has delays in her development. Slowing is indicative of some dysfunction in the brain, but is not associated with seizures or a tendency for seizures." So it's great that Meredith doesn't have a tendency toward seizures! This does confirm that there is some kind of dysfunction in the brain, but we still don't know what it is or why. We pretty much knew there was an issue in her brain because of her developmental delays, we just hadn't seen it confirmed in any actual medical test yet. He said there was no further testing recommended at this time.
It's so nice to have this test out of the way and to have heard these results today - the waiting is the hardest part. Meredith wasn't too phased by the news as she was very happy and smiley ALL day today despite a nasty cough - I can't wait for Spring! All in all, today was a very good day : )

  1. Glad the results were overall positive for Meredith. I've been there for the waiting game... no fun!
    Isn't it funny how we can analyze, fret, research, discuss,... and our Delayed Darlings just simply go on being happy smiley bundles of pure joy? God Bless them!
