Sunny days .... sweepin' the clouds away ....

Well in good news, the sun came out today! It has been gray and gloomy here lately, and cold. Today is gorgeous out. Yay!

Our nurse just called in sick for the afternoon. Of course, Monkey has tennis practice, which means I have to take Peanut with me. Not fun, given that her attention span is about 2 minutes. LOL It'll be a looooong hour.

The neurologist appointment this morning was good. He said we can go up one more step on her Keppra dosage before we're maxed out, so we are trying that first. We have seen a huge reduction in the number of seizures per week, so it's better than before at least. If this upped dose of Keppra doesn't stop the seizures totally, we are going to add Topomax. He mentioned a slight risk of status epilipus on it (not sure of the spelling, or how much the risk is). I definately need to research the issue.

I just got off the phone with the surgeon's office, we have an appointment Tuesday afternoon. This is the consultation for the surgery to redo her g-tube. Hopefully they can schedule it ASAP so we can get it done and over with!

Off to change a diaper and feed a Peanut. :)

Thanks for letting me know about that pop up! Its been doing it to me but I didn't know it did it to my readers! I thought it was just my computer, because its been freaking out lately! I guess she did go private. I don't know why she wouldn't tell me. I deleted her blog so it would stop.

Thanks for stopping by our blog and leaving such sweet comments. Your little Peanut is such a doll. I'm sorry for her struggle in this life, and yours. I look forward to the day when there is no more pain and strife, when all of our bodies are perfect. I can't imagine all that you deal with from day to day. You are a good mama! And Peanut is blessed to have you. Stay strong sweet friend.
Many blessings,

I hope everything goes smoothly with the g-tube. Sorry to hear about the nurse situation. I hope your adventure to tennis practice wasn't too crazy with Peanut:)

Some days just seem like there is always something... But I just admire the way you handle it all. Amazing.

And I so agree with the others... Yeah for sun!!
