Neurologist Appointment

We had Violet's follow-up with her Neurologist from her admission to hospital in April for her break-thru seizures.

He said her Tegretol Level check on Friday was a little high but it was taken at the peak level not in the trough level, so he feels in the trough level it would be normal.

He will still review her in 1 year, unless she has anymore break-thru seizures where she may need her meds increased or even changed.

I assume most hospitals would be the same but what I really like about all of Violet's Specialists at Westmead Kids is that even though you may go and see a Specialist of a certain field, they always are extremely interested in Violet's other medical conditions and diagnosis's.
They don't just stick to their area of expertise, they really show a keen interest in her overall management, which is fantastic!

I think that is very impressive too that they show an overall management. Certainly sounds like she has perfect care.
