ME: Dr. Tracy’s office just called. Edgar’s six-hour EEG was completely normal.
OSCAR: Does that mean Edgar doesn’t have epilepsy any more?
ME: No, he still has epilepsy; but what this test showed is just how well his medication is working. It’s the best result we could have hoped for.
OSCAR: So now we can get rid of another medication?
ME: We’re going to start.
OSCAR: What if Edgar gets rid of all his medication and still doesn’t have seizures? Will that mean he doesn’t have it anymore?
ME: It could mean that. But we have to take one step at a time. All in all, this is pretty miraculous.
OSCAR: Yeah, I guess I always kind of knew Edgar was a miracle.
