Birgitte had an EEG scan Wednesday morning, and we met with a neurologist Wednesday afternoon. The diagnosis is generalized epilepsy, which doesn't come as much of a surprise to us, but it's good to know for sure. The doctor has prescribed some medication (the name of which escapes me at the moment) that should prevent any further seizures, supposedly with very few side effects. We'll have to add this to our list of things to research before we make any decisions here as well, but in light of everything else that has happened in the past two weeks, this doesn't feel like a very big burden. Kristen or I will update a bit more on this soon.
Time for some sleep. Thanks again to everyone for the prayers, encouragement, visits, gifts, etc. over the past two weeks - our whole family has been so blessed by your support, it's hard to find the words to express how grateful we feel, so all I can say right now is a simple "thank you", and good night.
