We Have a Plan!

We will be leaving Saturday night to drive to my parent’s house in CT. We should arrive Sunday morning giving us time to regroup and rest before heading back to Manhattan on Monday. NYC is about 2 hours from my parents. We will hopefully be admitted between 1-5pm on Monday if all goes well. Occasionally they have to bump you up to the following day if a bed is not available. Lets hope this is not the case.

Gabrielle will be having a Video EEG completed over about 3 days. As of right now I have not heard about any further testing being scheduled but I’m hoping they will complete as much of it as possible while we are there. I know they mentioned doing a MEG and I’m not sure whether they would want a repeat PET or SPECT. I should know more once I speak with Dr. Devinsky.

We’re unsure about when we’ll return to Carolina. I guess it all depends on the results of the testing and the time frame for subsequent steps. We would certainly prefer to make this one long trip rather than multiple short ones given the traveling time.

Thanks to all of you who have offered to help us out in so many different ways! We greatly appreciate all of your love and support! What would we do without ya’ll?!

Thank you especially for your continued prayer!

    Hey you guys,

    I’m sorry we’ve been out of touch a little. My father died on the 17th, and he was in the hospital for about month before that, so I/we’ve been making trips and generally preoccupied. Just got back last night from FL.

    We wish you tons of luck with the testing, and everything else. I hope that Duff and the kids have a good time in Conn. I bet it’s beautiful there at this time of year. We sill love you all! Keep going!
