In Which Connor Will Never Ever Go To Sleep Ever Again

So as of yesterday Connor has started on his new medication regime; he's now getting Lamictal three times a day and is off the Ativan.  We're hoping this is going to keep him seizure free.  He's gone ten days now without a seizure, which I'm sad to say is the longest he's gone without one for quite a while.  He's been having seizures entirely too often for my comfort level as of late. 

Anyway, so far so good-- Connor's body is adjusting well to the medication change for the most part, with one rather significant exception.  Last night he stayed up until around two in the morning.  The insomnia he's experienced every time we've up his Lamictal has come back in full force.  Currently it's 11:00 at night and he's still going strong.  I'm not sure how school is going to go tomorrow, but it may not be pleasant. 

I'm sure Connor's looking forward to getting back to school though; he's been out for over a week and a half now.  The little guy absolutely loves school, so he'll probably be pretty excited when we walk through the doors-- if he isn't completely zombified by lack of sleep, that is.  I'm probably going to spend at least part of my much-missed break time napping, as it is physically impossible for me to go to sleep while Connor is awake. 

Especially if Connor's bedtime is anything is like it was last night.  Sigh.
