***MRI postponed to 1:00***
When Robert and I arrived at the hospital this morning, Vivian's wonderful nurse Pam reported that Vivian had had a much better night. Vivian still had episodes of agitation, but they were milder and Vivian calmed down much more quickly than in the past few days. Robert and I noticed immediately that Vivian seemed more alert and a bit more tranquil. We are hopeful that this is a result of the increase in one of her seizures medications (Keppra). Pam reported that the bloodwork the neurologist ordered this morning to check on the levels of Vivian's regular medications indicated that one of them (Depakote) was also low. The neurologist will have to review the numbers, but perhaps an adjustment in that medication will yield further improvement.
Vivian's MRI is scheduled for noon today. Please pray that it shows Vivian's brain is completely undamaged.
I will try to update again later this afternoon.
