Here is the latest update: yesterday we were told that she did not have a stroke. Now after all of the neurologists got together and looked at her MRI, they have determined that she did have a metabolic stroke. Whatever mitochondrial disorder she has is causing a reaction in her brain. They think that the continued seizures may be residual from the stroke. The plan is to increase her seizure meds and send us home tonight. She will need out-patient therapy because she cannot walk and can hardly move her right hand. We have a lot of hard days ahead of us.
