(((HUGS))) to you, to Caitlin, and the rest of your family. My daughter also has epilepsy (Landau Kleffner Syndrome). It can be a roller coaster. If you ever just need to vent or ask question, feel free to PM me and I'll help the best I can.

My son has rolandic seizures too. Thankfully, it's something that they think that he'll grow out of by the time he's 14. The first time I saw him seize was so scary, but the meds have been great. He hasn't had another seizure since the one we witnessed. I hope the seizure meds will be as affective for Caitlin! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">
