As many of you are aware, Qyshon has suffered from epilepsy for most of his young life. We have trailed many, many medications, endured numerous hospitalizations, had a Vagus Nerve Stimulator placed and yet have seen his seizure activity increase. In Qyshon's 15 years, he has been through more medically, than most go through in a lifetime. Because of that, and our desire to pursue all reasonable therapeutic options, we have opted to have Qyshon undergo a brain surgery, corpus callosotomy. The surgery will take place on Friday, November 4, 2016 @ Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC. Qyshon is expected to be in the hospital for approximately 1 week and then will have a several weeks of recovery (possibly in an acute rehab setting.)
We are asking for your prayers during this time.
Additionally, we have set up a gofundme account to help offset costs. //www.gofundme.com/Qyshon
