Another day of seizures-- Connor had three today. He slept in this morning, woke up briefly, had a seizure and then went right back to sleep. That set the pattern for the day; he dozed on and off throughout the afternoon, and finally perked up later in the evening.
He spent part of that time with his respite care worker while I drove up to Seattle and ran errands I needed to get done. I feel guilty about leaving the house knowing that he will probably have more seizures while I'm away, but I know she can handle them just as competently as I can. Unfortunately it's gotten to the point that if I canceled respite care every time he was having seizures, I would never go anywhere.
Not that I really want to go anywhere right now; it's just below thirty degrees outside at the moment, though it should heat up into the forties tomorrow. I'm planning on spending a lot of time sitting next to the fire sipping a cup of hot tea and sewing-- it feels like it's going to be one of those days. Especially since the little guy slept all day today, and has now decided as a result to be up all night.
