Another great day in the office. Even better, when I came home to a happy bubba. My mum had been given some baby clothes, so I came home to Sheena looking gorgeous in yet another romper to add to her collection.
She is slowly getting more engaged, which is very promising as far as the treatment working for her spasms. She is certainly needing more sleep during the day, and she is not as hungry as she was before - but both of those things are fine by me. Unfortunately I still saw about 3 episodes today where she was doing her blinking/lip smacking thing. They are not obviously a seizure, and I sometimes think it is just her expression when she is seeking her dummy, but it lasts a bit too long for that. Infantile Spasms are normally very obvious - like a sudden bow at the waist, or head-nod. They are also called Salaam Seizures, because they look like prayer. Sheena has never done that, so her Pead thought perhaps she might not have it very bad. We have an appointment with a Neurologist, so he might be able to give us more insight as far as that is concerned.
Here is Sheena in her corner chair, working those abs. Isn't she sitting up lovely and straight - no propping there.
