Sheena is a Punk Rocker
Sheena gave me a nice surprise yesterday. She had her mowhawk back after her evening bath. She spent her first 4 months with a mowhawk, so it was like old times. She was not well up until about 2pm, then she was fine for the rest of the day. She had 4 seizures, instead of her usual 1, so I rang the Neuro's and they've changed her meds yet again. Just based on my explanation of them, they think they are Focal Seizures (unlike IS, not too much effect on her development and usually easy to control with anti-convulsants).
Today, she's been good all day, apart from 2 seizures early in the morning that lasted about 5 seconds each. We had a respite carer look after her in the afternoon, and she slept 3 of the 4 hours. Lucky Helen!
While she was being looked after, I managed to catch up with my local Mother's Group. Sheena was missed, and it was odd to be there without her, but fantastic for me to have a few hours chatting with the girls. Hopefully if she stays on the mend, we'll both be back next time.
Sheena was well enough to have a bit of a play on her activity mat without getting distressed.
