Well as most of ya'll know my son, David , is going to have brain surgery again in the next few months. The doctor's office called me yesterday and told me that we need to be up there April 30 at 9 am to have a PET Scan done. Its kinda like a CAT Scan or a MRI but they give him an IV with Gluecos (sugar that your body already has) and when it seeps into his brain, the parts that excepts it is the parts thats working right now but the parts that don't accept it is the parts that is having problems and thats where the seizure activity is happening. So its another way to pin point where the seizures is coming from instead of having to do alot of EEGs. This test will not hurt him at all. I will keep everybody posted. Love ya'll

UPDATE: As some of ya'll may know, David was in the hospital Monday - Wendsday of last week for his fevor being high and he had 4 seizures last Monday. During the stay at the hospital and threw blood work we found out that he had a staff infection virus and that is what was making his fevor go up so high. He went to school today and is doing much better. As for his test in Augusta Ga, it has be moved to this Thursday as long as he isn't in the hospital. I will let everybody know what is going on. This is just a test but as we have found out with David his wellness can change any second and anything can happen. So when we know something I will let everybody know. Well thats all for right now so I will ttyl.
