Welcome to the forum
My boy (now 2 years old) started having seizures at 18th hour of life and it worsened to the point of 5-6 seizures an hour. He was on a cocktail of seizure meds (sorry I can't remember the names of the meds now) and sedated to control the seizures. When he was discharged from PICU, he was on phenobarbitone to control his sub-clinical seizures and we were given diazepam (anal suppositories) as emergency med in case he experiences breakthru seizures.
When he was 3 months old, his neuro switched him to epilim coz his seizures broke thru during a fever plus he had been having absent and myoclonic seizures even tho he was on phenobarb, which also didn't help with his irritability. Epilim has been clearly more suitable for him as those episodes stopped. When he was 7 months old, neuro put on him on oral diazepam which has a stabilising effect on his epilepsy and also calms him.
EEGs have shown that his sub-clinical seizures usually occur at the right part of his brain. Hubby & I have also watched medical documentaries about children who undergo brain surgery to remove the damaged part that's causing seizure activity. But for my boy, he has limited brain matter as a lot of brain cells died during his early days of bleeding & swelling in his brain. So we're not exactly keen on removing any more brain matter since he doesn't have much left.
His prognosis is low-functioning, high-dependency, non-mobile, non-verbal & limited life span with a host of other med issues. I've accepted that's he's unlikely to ever walk or talk so I've no expectations about my son. My aims are for him to be happy and healthy (by managing his med conditions in whatever ways we can). So I'm pleasantly surprised that he has his own way of communicating with us - he smiles, laughs, coos, babbles, moves his arms & legs (including kicking us to express his displeasure!). He can hold up his head & sits aided by adaptive equipment.
