Worried....

Something is wrong with Matthew. What it is, I don't know. Since Thursday he's been screaming, extremely jittery and acting very weird. No one seems to know what's wrong with him. I've been to the doctor on Thursday, had tests to check his shunt on Friday. I've talked with his epileptologist Thursday, Saturday and today. No one seems to know what's wrong. The biggest thing that has been going on is we have been decreasing one of his seizure medications, so we thought that was the problem. But we've given him big doses of it, and it doesn't seem to be the problem. I don't get nervous often with Matthew; I'm actually very comfortable (often more than the doctors) with him...but not right now. I've actually toyed with just packing him up and taking him to the hospital, but the good neurologists are 6 hours away...that's a big ER trip. So the doctors are going to conference about Matthew tomorrow. Hopefully we'll get something figured out.

Sorry to hear about this. I saw Steve and the kids leaving church early on Sabbath -- and Ron mentioned something about Matthew being very fussy -- screaming. Wish there was something someone could do. Keep us posted -- and until then -- just know we are praying, too!
