2. Focus! Focus is a great thing. I can't believe how happy I am working at all 3-sports. I never get bored and I'm running around loving every thing I'm doing. I have yet to sign-up for a Tri. Still waiting to figure out what the best Tri would be to do around here. Either way I'm training...very causally, nothing official yet. Just getting warmed up with all of the sports. I love that I can bike at home! I love that switching everything up makes me look forward to the next activity and to be in the moment! Looking forward to my bike purchase and then I will probably register for a few races. I am working on spreading my purchases out, which is not easy. The purchases for this sport is never ending! I have to watch my wallet!

This carried his mobile EEG.
I mention all of this because I'm sure some of you might know someone who has epilepsy or you might even have been diagnosed and maybe can help. They have prescribed him Keppra and I'm worried they are having side effects. He get angry, throws fits, hits and gets so mad. The side effects mention anger, irritability and a long list of other things. The problem is, Cole is 3-1/2 which is a VERY tough time as far as attitude goes. Is it the meds or his age? I have heard that Keppra can cause anger issues and have heard a few people on the same medication deal with this. I figured I would ask and see if any of you have feedback or ideas? I hate the idea of trying all types of medication? Luckily we have seen no seizures since he started the keppra, but we weren't really seeing them before either. We meet with our neurologist at the end of the month and will get more information then. Thanks ahead of time for any tips and/or feedback you might have!
|Playing soccer...you can't keep Cole down!|
|Clearly very effected! Watching tv, gifts and visitors, yummy snacks! What's wrong with being in the hospital?|
|We called this...his Avatar. It was the EEG reading his brain waves.|
