Cleveland Clinic Day 11

Thursday evening, week 2. Lisa went back on Trileptal last night, tapering upward to a full dose of 900mg this morning. The idea at this point is to…go home!

Yep. Given that we haven’t seen any seizure activity, we’re going to try dropping her medication down to just this one and get her back into her normal environment.

This falls squarely in the ‘double-edged sword’ territory. We’re very optimistic that she’s stabilized but like I said earlier, with her history, this feels very much like Russian Roulette.

And, there’s no easy or obvious way to talk about what we’re looking at. Miracle? Honeymoon period? Another morph in her symptoms (the first 5 years were mostly auras that affected her stomach and emotions)? If it’s a morph, when is the next one going to come? If it’s a miracle cure, why didn’t we at least get a letter from an angel giving us the ‘all clear’?

We’re easing our way into excitement – at least I am. I figure I’ll do the worrying and Lisa can enjoy the freedom. Whatever is happening, she’s about to enter a phase of her life in whch she’ll be much, much less medicated.

I’m expecting my posts in her will happen less regularly, at least posts related to Lisa’s health.  We’ll see. Maybe I can get the Music section up and going.  We’ll see.
