Get Up - Stand Up
Sheena previously has had zero interest in standing, or baring weight, but look at her here. What a little champ.
Earlier she had (or refused) dinner in her chair, with both her feet standing in a tupperware dish full of rice. What the??? Well it was an idea so that she could get more awareness of her feet. Another thing that has been suggested, is to put shoes on her to get a tight sensation around the feet.
Otherwise she was exhausted today after two days in childcare. It really took it out of her, but she revved up in the afternoon.
Tonight we reduced her Epilim by 1ml, as she's not having any signs of seizures. She is on the minimum dosage of it now, so, like the Dr's used to say, "cross-fingers". If she remains seizure free for another 6 months they'll probably try to wean her off. The brain matures so much at this age, that a low dose of Epilim might hold off other forms of epilepsy that she is more likely than most to develop given the history of IS.
