She's not epileptic!

(((If you're lost, refer to this, this, and this)))

On Wednesday, Nicole got the results from her doctor and the news is good.

Nicole's mother (8:44:54 PM): basically, what the dr said is that Nicole is not a true epileptic and that they will be weaning her off her meds over a 2 month period but not until May when school is over.

Me (8:45:12 PM): ah
Me (8:45:26 PM): so it was more of a once-in-a-lifetime thing?

Nicole's mother (8:46:08 PM): she does have the gene and has the potential to have more seizures but a true epileptic is someone who has at least 2 seizures in a specific span.

Nicole's mother (8:46:35 PM): could be she may not have any more but time will tell.

Me (8:46:55 PM): ah, interesting
Me (8:47:07 PM): any reasoning about her initial seizure?

Nicole's mother (8:47:10 PM): no

Needless to say, everyone is relieved now for the most part. Here's to no more seizures (hopefully)!

4 days of college down, many more to go.
