I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW THE RAIN HAS GONE!
I might be getting a little ahead of myself, but since Danger’s return to home, things have really become easier in the respect of not having to be so paranoid about seizures.
To be honest, it will be in the back of our minds til his next EEG (4 days before Christmas!) BUT we have also started the weaning process, which makes it very real, that he could not only be SEIZURE free but MEDICINE free too!
He’s had to be on AEDs for pretty much all of his life, since he was 10 months old, so this is a another huge feat to celebrate! He may need some tweaks along the way, with other issues that could very much pop up due to post-surgery complications to do with how his brain now deals with hormones and other stuff, but really, we have a wonderful community that we can go to should that appear (and really, it most likely will, due to the complexities of his surgery, but hey we are realists, and that’s ok!)
We have noticed since the weaning process – which began about 2 weeks ago, his vocab is improving every day. I asked him what coloured icey-pole he wanted – blue or red – he said RED. He has NEVER said that word before, and he knew what red was!
I know it may sound such a simple thing, something we don’t think anything of in our day to day life, but for Danger, it is amazing to see him transition from a once-foggy boy to a bright happy child.
I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW THE RAIN HAS GONE
I CAN SEE ALL OBSTACLES IN MY WAY
IT’S GONNA BE A BRIGHT, BRIGHT, SUN SHINEY DAY 🙂
