Vagus Nerve Stimulation

Jude’s been to see another doctor today and we’re looking at August surgery to insert the little device in his chest to stimulate the Vagus Nerve and possibly assist in the control of his seizures. Although I’m sure it won’t cause him any discomfort and may well prove to be beneficial…apparently I’ll be able to see and feel the device underneath his skin. I must say that sort of makes me feel a little but….like this.

Jude’s had another visit from Acorns Hospice at Home who provide respite care for a few hours once or twice a week after school. Jude really enjoys their company 🙂
