Splashing in the Spa

For the 2nd day in a row Sheena woke up at 5.45am, so I got up early fed her, and fitted in a decent bike ride before hubby went to work. Love it. Except, the early start means I need an afternoon nap, which I have fortunately managed to get.

Sheena had an appointment with her Peadiatrition yesterday. He'd never seen her well before, so he was impressed with her progress. I mentioned to him that she has recently gone off her solids again - except yoghurt and banana. However, she'd be happy enough without that too. He said not to worry about it, as she is still on the chubby side, and it should sort itself out. She has actually lost a full kilo since coming off the prednisolone! That is huge. It is more than 10% of her body-weight.

He was a more positive about Sheena's outcomes. The MRI had nothing out of the ordinary and those dreadful bloods we had to get done just after Christmas were also fine. He wants me to consult with the Neurologist about taking her off epilepsy meds completely, and we have an appointment with him next week, so we shall see.

Sheena was funny in her bath tonight. She thinks she is swimming, and gets very excited. It is worth a watch: Sheena Splashing.

Wow, she isn't afraid of the water splashing on her at all, I'm impressed. Miss E loves the water, but she can't stand to have it any where near her face.
