New Normal

After consulting with three of Jerard's doctors yesterday, this is what we've learned :
~The function Jerard lost in this last major seizure episode he will most likely not regain. We'd noticed that also from his seizures in 2010 - after losing the left side function of his body he really hadn't regained any use even with physical therapy.
So we are looking at a "new normal". He is quiet, doesn't move much. He will continue to be fed with a naso-gastric tube for another 3 - 4 months. Then, if no swallowing has returned, he will have a permanent tube inserted into his stomach (so he doesn't have a tube hanging out of his nose all the time.)
He continues to take two anti-seizures medications and get nebulized every four hours for breathing.
