Brett just spoke with the medical director of Jenelle's insurance medical group, and all of the authorizations for UCLA have been approved! We are scheduled to go to UCLA on Wednesday, April 28, 2004 for her MRI, Video EEG and PET scan. According to UCLA, it will take about 3 months till they do the surgery if they determine she is a candidate. We estimate we'll be at UCLA for 4 or 5 days, depending on how long the tests take. Jenelle must be admitted because they plan to take her off her seizure meds "cold turkey" in order to induce seizures. She needs to be monitored so she doesn't go into status.
Please keep us in your prayers during that time. Thank you so much for your support!
