Bertrand in emergency room

We're in the emergency room.

When Bertrand saw Dr. Gooch this morning, she was disturbed by the frequency and intensity of his seizures. She said he needed to begin antiseizure medication immediately and sent him to the emergency room.

Bertrand is midway through a megadose of Keppra by IV, and we'll be monitoring him closely for 24 hours for side effects and any signs of improvement.

As of this moment, we're still seeing seizures, but it can take a while for the medication to take effect.
