In Which Connor Has A Bad Day

Well, Connor had another one of those days that involved multiple seizures and Diastat, which was not particularly fun.  So we talked with his neurologist and we've upped his Depakote.  Of course I just had all of his medication forms for school filled out, and now they're already out of date.  Oh well.

He spent most of the day sleeping, and he woke up about the time Jeremy got home.  We put on a movie for him about deep sea diving that I'd checked out from the library as part of our lesson on the ocean.  He really seemed to enjoy it, as it had music and a whole lot of interesting and brightly colored fish.  He alternated between looking at the video and staring at his daddy, who was snuggling with him on the couch.  That kid loves his dad like you wouldn't believe. 

Unfortunately I think I might be coming down with a bit of a cold, which I'm not really surprised by given my sleeping habits over the last week or so.  Hopefully it will be a quick bug and I'll be over it within a couple of days.  In the meantime I have the perfect excuse to drink large quantities of hot tea and also to eat tons of dark chocolate, which contains all sorts of antioxidants and is probably good for getting rid of colds.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Anyway, so keep your fingers crossed that both Connor and I will be feeling better in the morning.  We've got things to do!

Fingers crossed! Hope today is a better day.

Sorry to hear it. Feel free to up the chocolate dosage as well, to match Connor's. It does release seratonin (aka happy juice) in the brain, and they say laughter is the best medicine, so maybe you can do something with that line of reasoning. Anyway, I hope you're both doing better.
