In March 2019, we learned that there is a possibility for life without epileptic seizures. It was about two weeks after an experimental treatment at a clinic in Russia. We realized that the child was not as usual. He had increased appetite, and more energy. He felt more “present”. We hadn’t observed seizures since we got back. Usually he had about 10 absence seizures a day. The doctor in Russia did say that the stem cells might actually help epilepsy. More than that, the treatment led to a complete withdrawal of the epilepsy. We were shocked that this actually happened. At least for now we don’t need to sleep with one eye open, for fear of SUDEP.

Absence seizures, previously known as petit mal seizures, are a type of epilepsy. They occur due to brief periods of abnormal electrical activity in the brain.


They are most common in children aged 4-14 years, but they can also affect adults.

This article discusses what absence seizures are, how to spot one, and how to treat them.
