Hi Tanya,
My heart is with you and your family, and I think they're lucky you're there to be their medical advocate. If you are seeking another opinion, Dr. Jeffrey Rothstein at Johns Hopkins has a good reputation (I read this from one of these forums but there is so much information you might not access it yourself) and Johns Hopkins itself is a major neurological diagnostic center. Also the Montreal Neurological Institute in Canada (where I live) is excellent. Having said that, to echo someone else on your thread, doctors do err. Think of that Olympic athlete with over 12 opinions some of which recommended amputation which it turned out was unnecessary.

All you can do is take it one step at a time and cry off by yourself in the bath.
LOL,
E.
