Thank you for your query,
You din't mention the age of your child as it will help to tell the prognosis in a case of seizures.
And your child is having recurrent episodes and the EEG was abnormal it is looking like Generalized Idiopathic Epilepsy
Accepting to have epilepsy is bothersome as the child will be normal without any physical signs and symptoms in between the seizure episodes.
But we should understand that it is a disorder and its symptoms and signs are paroxysmal and unpredictable.
There are good drugs available to control seizure.
If you want you can go for a second opinion
with a Pediatric neurologist
to know the details of your child problem.
Hope i have answered your query.
