That's pretty much how I feel sometimes. We can have a few "good" days to only be followed by a few bad days. Yesterday was one of those days. Gracie had 12 seizures yesterday, which is a drastic increase over her baseline of 2-3 seizures per day. This morning alone she's had 3. We're not really sure why, but then again that's par for the course.
I contacted Dr. Friederich this morning and he wanted us to up her Keppra to 2 ml twice a day and give her some Lorazepam to calm her down. He said if the increase in Keppra doesn't help we might have to look at switching her meds, which more then likely means giving her Phenobarbital.
So far she's been resting comfortably since her morning meds. So we'll see what the rest of the day holds for us.
