However could not recall driving to the airport, the flight, layover, Etc... Needless to say My Wife was very concerned. After a while we assumed that the tequilla sunrise we may have been tainted [My Wife hardly touched hers]. Skip ahead to the summer of 2010. grand mal seizure upon awakening from a mid afternoon nap. Paramedics medevaced to Hospital. MRI, EEG, EKG, ETC... No abnormamities found. Since then. numerous nocturnal petit mal seizures. Doctors keep increasing dosage of Keppra. Early memories of childhood, adolescence, early adulthood appear to be intact. However, short term memory of people and places are vague to non-existent. I have been noticing a lot of chatter about bilirubin build up in brain. I want my memory back!
