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!
