We get to go to the University of Chicago Hospital tomorrow to see Breeanna's new Neurologist. A 2 hour drive for Breeanna isnt going to be fun. Going to ask him to do metabolic tests on her because I realized something this weekend, she never smells like a normal kid. I dont know how to explain it but about 2 hours after a bath she has this smell to her. It could be from her anti siezure meds but I believe she had it before she started siezing. Any thoughts?
Shes on Triliptal and its not the urine i can smell it mainly in her hair even shortly after a bath.
Here are the side effects:
