Seizure Update

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Eliah had a total of seven seizures yesterday.  His blood pressure was way down, around 80/50 and 100/30 all afternoon.   I talked to the Nephrologist, and they said the low blood pressures were in normal range (although they are not normal for Eliah).

After Kelley picked him up for the night, he didn't have any more seizures, but his blood pressure shot up to the mid 140's.  Personally, I think it's related, I just don't know which is causing the problem, his heart or his brain.  I worry that his heart is weak and not able to keep up, and in turn, not pumping enough oxygen to his brain.  Or, it could be that his brain is haywire and affecting his heartrate.  Which is better?  Neither.
