The Week

>> Monday, August 9, 2010

Bug had a decent week. He had a few seizures here and there but a far cry better than 5 in the middle of the day.

He was restless a few nights ago, so restless in fact that we had to medicate him to get him to sleep. About 15 minutes are sleep he had one seizure and then the rest of the night was uneventful.

Now, we have used this medication before, and before any indignant Mom's start in let me explain: Seizures are worse when the person is too tired, or exhausted so sleep deprivation isn't just annoying it's life-threatening. He has had this medication in the past which mixed will work one night and then not work the other night. In the last 2 years we haven't had to use it much but he recovers from it just peachy. So, when he slept off and on all day the day after, I wondered what had happened. Sometimes, if he has a seizure and he seemingly fights it off, he will be sleepy or in a funk until he has another. So maybe that was it, or maybe something is changing again. Either way, it was a worrisome night and day.

He has been sleeping great since then though. Two nights and good zzzz's.

Now to wait for his ear surgery....
