At Olivia's last doctor appointment we again discussed her white blood count. In case you don't remember, her white count had been steadily dropping, a sometime side effect from the med she was switched to over a year ago. They had been ready to switch her to another, but before doing that they had to do a blood test to make sure she was not allergic as there is a small percentage of the population that has a severe allergy.
In the meantime, her white blood count rose to even higher than what it had started at. Probably coincidence, especially as I am by no means knowledgeable on medical issues at all, BUT as her white blood count went down, that is when her seizures issues began first with her legs and then with the fullblown seizures. As soon as she began her meds to control the seizures, that is when her levels rose. Weird? Crazy? Coincidence? I don't know, but I am thankful.
For now we are continuing on the same meds we've been doing. Olivia is on all pills now which has been wonderful. The new med would have only been available in her dosage in a liquid. Liquids are no fun when traveling, etc.
Thank God it seems she is on the right track with all her meds currently.
