Today, Will had two seizures. Understandably, this was very upsetting to the family. However, the Doctors have assured Connie and Al that this is a fairly normal side effect of the surgery. It is necessary to cool the body to almost freezing prior to the surgery. Then as the body returns to normal body temperature it can cause a little glitch (medical term!) in the brain that can cause seizures. Will had a CT scan today and it came back normal. He was also evaluated by a neurologist who sees this side effect often and is not concerned at this point. Will was put on anti-seizure medication. Further testing and consults will be done to rule out any further issues.
