Run with your gout
We've had a very stressful few weeks. It hasn't helped that Scarlett got the cold beyond all colds. Well, what do we expect when you take her to a soft play area within which she finds the dirtiest looking ball to eat. Oh and follow this by letting some little girl kiss her on the lips a few times.
This then led to Zack getting sick, vomiting and having a general snotty cold. Which he is still getting over. This then leads on to more seizures and us holding off on increasing his medication just in case him being ill is the cause of the influx in tonic spasms.
And then, I get sick which is even worse because dealing with two crying children whilst your head is banging, your throat is sore and your nose is snotty is bad, bad news.
Okay. Everyone breathe out because things are now a little calmer.
Scarlett's cold is gone. Zack is on the mend and off the Clonazepam. He is actually off it a bit quicker than I would have liked simply because the chemist gave us a different strength of his medicine for his repeat prescription. This small matter, I only picked up on when I looked at the label. We've been giving him half his dose for a few days so now we just dropped it off completely.
His seizures are becoming longer in length but not as many. Still too many to be having so I think we may have to increase the medicine. I have a gut feeling though that this one doesn't work for him. Another one we can chalk up on the board.
