During his first year, Finnegan Born-Crow suffered 50 to 100 seizures a day. That was until he received a revolutionary new surgery and he hasn’t had one since.
The first time Nicole Born-Crow noticed her baby son having a seizure, the family was on a vacation to New York.
‘It was terrifying. We had no idea what it was,’ Mrs Born-Crow told FoxNews.com. ‘I had an idea of what epilepsy is. You think of violent shaking but not staring blankly into space. And he’d do that for a massive amount of time. He also got really shallow breath, and his eyes would start to tick to one side of his head.’
As soon as she and her husband Kevin were back in their home of Cleveland, Ohio, they took Finnegan to see a neurologist who seemed to solve the problem.
Finnegan was put on anti-seizure medication which stopped the episodes that were starting to happen three to five times a day.
But that was only a temporary a solution. Mrs Born-Crow says that the medication worked great at first, but then it would stop working and they’d have to increase the dosage or switch to something new.
