A higher then hoped-for blood result for C.


Just received C.'s blood test results from this morning. Her level of Valproic Acid is rather high, 78.08 ug/ml with normal ranging from 50 to 100 ug/ml.

I'm afraid this means the neurologist will not recommend raising C.'s dosage any higher even though she still seizes about 3 times a day. 

Perhaps the fact that we did the test about an hour and a half before her next dose contributed to this high reading. I'll suggest to the doctor that we do it again right before C. is due for a dose in the hope that we'll get a lower level. Then hopefully, the doctor will agree to raise the dosage again.
