> No, Matt, there are no other symptoms. My dad is on tegretol to control any possible seizure activity that might occur due to neurosurgery.
> Last night he awoke at 2:30, got out of bed by himself, and worked at scraping some flaking paint off of the window frames. He did this for some 4 hours before I heard him. Poor dear--he just gets caught up in the activity and stays with it until I can distract him. I called his doctor today and asked if it was safe to give him some type of sleeping pill. he recommended that I give him 1 mg lorazepam to see if this will help him sleep through the night. But I will have to sleep in his room just in case he does wake up and get up--just in case the medication makes him unsteady. Don't want another fall!

Dear cait,

While I have received dramatic help from the doctor, I continue to have problems sleeping. I can sleep for 1 to 3 hours and then I am awake
for the remainder of the evening, tossing, dozing, dreaming wierd dreams. I am told the right side of my brain is very damaged and is firing
too much, like a hair trigger on a gun. Please e-mail for further discussion.
