This is another clip of Austin grabbing his right leg and slapping his right hand before/during/after the small set of spasms. I find it extremely odd that there were right sided abnormalities found on the PET scan. If anything has ever been consistent during this rollercoaster of IS, it's that he has never strayed from the right hand issues. This has been going on since just before I saw the first spasms. It has never been his left hand and the frequency and severity of it has only intensified. Not only that, but it goes with his partiality to his left hand (he's shown a preference since he was 9-10 months old). And now? His head jerks to the right with certain types of seizures. I so wish we could get a repeat PET scan. I just wish we could do it closer to home. I guess just because he has consistent left hemisphere symptoms, it doesn't mean it's not bilateral. Not that I'm wanting to revisit the surgical world...but, I just wish I knew why his behaviors and symptoms don't seem to support the findings.
