The number of seizures is on the rise. Yesterday we had three. It's classic partial complexes, with the flicking eyes, chewing motions and/or flirty mouth, clenched fists. She makes this funny little cough went she starts to come around. An increase in the amount of valproic acid has so far not done anything. She's on antibiotics to treat the sinus infection she's been struggling with, and at least that seems to be improving.
Her seizures are leaving her exhausted. She curled up on my lap and fell asleep like this last night.
She's trying very hard to be her normal, happy self, and is mostly succeeding. I praise God for that.
Rachael has started signing!! We've been trying to capture a seizure on video for neurology, without success. We managed to capture Rachael signing, however!!
