Well, I cannot believe it has been 22 days since I posted about my daughter’s seizure. I did talk to her neurologist, or rather her father did. He thinks it was the problem getting her medicine from the pharmacy and that once she was back on it regularly, she wouldn’t have any more problems. So far, so good. 22 days and no more seizures. That was still scary – and somewhat discouraging, in that her seizures are controlled but definitely not going away.
Sigh. Well, she was diagnosed with a form of epilepsy that she won’t grow out of so I suppose it really shouldn’t surprise me. Still, you can’t help being disappointed. I suppose that somewhere in the recesses of my mind there was a small, flickering hope that it would go away. I know that’s not rational, but there you have it. As a mother, I can’t help it.
At any rate, life is going back to normal. We’ve all had a bad cold for over a week now. That is getting really old, really fast. If I could just curl up and sleep for a day or two, I’m sure I’d recover quicker, but of course that isn’t going to happen. This weekend was restful, but of course there was still laundry, grocery shopping, etc. that had to be done. Ah well. It is what it is. I’ll get better any way, but I would really LOVE to sleep.
Right now that is what I want for my upcoming birthday – sleep!
There’s not much else going on. Due to the health issues, my daughter was out of school all week. I don’t think she’s gone a full week to school this year, between being sick, holidays, and snow. Sigh. I hate that she’s missed so much school – and it makes getting her into a regular schedule difficult. She did make it through the day today, which was wonderful – and she ate a good dinner, which made me happy. (LOL, it is the little things that please me these days!)
