Thanks for the query

I need to know more about the present situation

1. How is his general condition now? Is he able to carry on his daily
Activities? Is he able walk, talk? Or is he bed ridden?
2. How often are the seizures coming? How many drugs is he on?
3. It would be excellent if you could attach the scan or type out the report.
4 Is he having recurrent infections? And frequent hospital admissions

Please get back to me with the answers, I am awaiting your reply
