Well DARN IT!!!
Since Monday morning Jake had not had a seizure!! I read from some very wise Doose mommy's on an online support group that giving OMega 3 vitamins might help with seizures, clarity, and/or overall general health. What the heck, I thought and gave it a try, it certainly can't hurt! So since I had started giving it to him, Jake has not had a seizure! Not at nap , nor during the night......until yesterday.
At school, his awesome teachers, Ms. McVay and Mrs. Chavez, reported that Jake had a pretty active nap, regarding seizures!
Damn it! that's what I get for opening my big mouth. About the same time my little guy was seizing, I was telling this same support group about our suspected success with Omega 3.
Unfortunately, Jake was a seizing machine last night as well. I think he had at least 4 maybe 5. A couple of these a considerable amount longer than usual. usually these nocturnal tc's will stop as quickly as they started, in a couple of seconds. However, last night a few of these damn things were between 10-20 seconds.
I am very glad we have an appointment to be admitted this Wednesday.
We are praying that Jake will receive as great of birthday present, as he did last year!
After last April's steroid treatment, his last drop was on his 4th birthday, April 29th.
Although, I look back at his birthday pictures and can't believe how big and swollen he was from the treatment, and still can't imagine and barely believe the life we were living last year, I am soo very thankful for how far we have come!
I pray the same gains for this year!
Leaving that blue helmet behind!
