In Which Connor Will Never Go To Sleep Ever Again

Connor had two more seizures today.  The first one wasn't too bad-- it only lasted a few seconds-- but the second one was a couple of minutes long.  He conked out in the middle of our local pet food store and we managed to scare the bejeezus out of several employees.  He also threw up most of his lunch all over their floor when he came to, which probably didn't improve matters.  Oh well.

He did make it all the way through the school day, which was pretty good.  I'd originally planned not to send him, but he really wanted to go so I took him, figuring if he was really too tired his teacher would send him home.  I'm not sure whether or not we'll make it tomorrow, though, because Connor and I may both be too tired to get out of bed.  The upped dose of the Lamictal is giving the little guy a bad case of insomnia.  He stayed awake until almost one thirty in the morning last night, and here it is past eleven in the evening and he's still wide awake.  Of course that means that I'm wide awake too.  I've got the apnea monitor out in the living room so that at least Jeremy can get some sleep. 

Ah, the joys of parenting.
