In Which Connor Has Another Fantastic Day

Connor had another fantastic day today, which made me pretty happy!  Not only did he have zero large seizures (and significantly fewer small ones) but we got to sign off on a doctor!

Yes, we can officially say "auf weidersehen" to the Endocrinology department, who gave Connor a clean bill of health and said we didn't have to come back!  Can I just say that I absolutely love these types of appointments?  I always want to do a little dance and high-five the doctor when they tell us we don't have to come back instead of giving us two or three more specialists we have to go see and writing us up a whole bunch of orders for various new things we need to do.  I'm pretty sure the doctor wasn't ready for the awe-inspiring sight (read: terrible) that is my Happy Dance, though, so I managed to restrain myself.  Barely.  Considering this is only about the second time this has ever happened, I'm amazed that I was able to reign myself in.

Until I got home, anyway, where Connor thought the dancing was pretty great and the cats looked appropriately offended.

So it was a great day!  Of course Connor is still awake, which I pretty much figured was going to happen since we went down on his Trileptal again today.  He's in there happily singing away to himself.  Luckily I anticipated and picked up a new book so that I won't be end up tearing up over sappy Thai life insurance commercials at two in the morning like I did the last time Connor had insomnia.  

Hopefully tomorrow he'll be back to his usual sleep habits!

Great news! Yay, Connor :D

If Connor has more insomnia, try this video of a Thai football (soccer) team.

Oh rats.

I thought I could make a link.

If it doesn't work, here's the URL:

Lauren got dismissed from PT. Well, not dismissed but PT was dropped to 30 minutes of indirect services per semester on her IEP this year.

I never thought I would hear that and I kept saying "can you say that again? Just say that again please?"

I'm not expecting for her to get dismissed from another service for another 10 years so maybe I'll think of a better response in the coming years.

I LOVE reading about happy days for Connor - but oh, do I ever regret watching that life insurance commercial. I have to go blow my nose now.

Happy dance, happy dance!!!

This is so good to hear and I hope that these seizure free days go on and on and on!

Jess, I'd love it if you would participate in a video project that I'm doing. I posted about it on Hopeful Parents and also over at my blog. I'm not sure it would be complete without you!

Yay for a happy dance! And no seizures!

That commercial is a tear-jerker, and I'm not even watching it at 2 a.m. I just gotta say you are such a strong person in the face of difficulty and such a good mother to your son.
