Neurology Visit

Sarah called neurology this morning in hopes to schedule an appointment, which usually takes about 2-3 months just to get on the books. As luck would have it, someone cancelled this morning and we were able to get in this afternoon! We gave her neurologist an information dump as to what has been going on over the past few months. We all agreed to do a trial of ranitidine (Zantac) in hopes of targeting some of Mira's possible ailments. Since Mira can't tell us what is going on, we have to play 'Name that Fuss'. So at this point, our best guess is that all of her irritability could be reflux. So, either the ranitidine will give her some relief or it will do nothing. I hope and pray that it helps her and it's something very simple.

As for the seizures, we are going to do an increased trial of Lyrica after a few days of the ranitidine and see what happens. No one seemed to have any definitive suggestions at the appointment as what to try next in terms of seizure control, so this is our best option for now.
