My nephew

GOOD NEWS! My nephew does not have epilepsy! The neurologist had a cancellation and my nephew got the appointment. They tested him and said they believe he did actually faint and that considering his families back ground he may have had a seizure when he fainted which is uncommon but not unheard of. But that even if he did have a seizure, it is not epilepsy! So he is perfectly fine! THANKYOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS! *big hugs*

My brother also had an episode like this, and it was not attributable to epilepsy, even though the first doctors he saw treated him for epilepsy. I'm glad it worked out for his benefit, but I'll still pray for him that it doesn't happen again, and if it does, that he gets to see the right doctor.

my brother had seizures, the doctors wouldn'nt diagnose him as an epileptic because he didn't have enough of them in a year to be considered one....whatever that means...they would just up his medicine. just be aware of that.
