Epilepsy: life goes up, life goes down.
When you have epilepsy different things can happen to different people.
Some grow out of it, that is the best.
Some do not, that is the worse.
Some get placed on disability, and lose a job.
For me a lot of this is true.
I had surgery, not once but twice. The first one failed, but they had tried. The second one worked. And that was good.
Still, I had to take a lot of medicine, the doctors told me there were lesions all over the left part of my brain. They still may grow, they could only take some of the lesions out.
A few weeks ago, I got sick and went to the ER. Then I was told my kidney was failing. They sent me to my neurologist. Test after test, he told me what was wrong. The kidney was fine, if some of my medicine was taken down a bit.
So, that is what we did. Now we are waiting. Just waiting. If I don't have a seizure I am fine! That would be great! Taking less medication would be a blessing for me, I hate taking pills anyway.
I also have to drink a lot of water, just to flush out the kidneys. It keeps them clean, nice and clean. But, I am happy the kidney is fine, that part is wonderful!
The hardest thing to do, is wait. Will the kidneys have trouble again? I pray not. Will I have a seizure again? I pray not. Will the lesions grow? I pray not?
But, I don't know, I just don't know, nor do the doctors. We just have to wait.
May 2012, God has cured my kidney. Thanks to God, I no longer have to wait.
