No more Zonegran...

We weaned Sophie off of Zonegran. It feels so good to have one less medication to give her. We have also seen a spike in her alertness and moodiness. She has become quite the demanding one. I absolutely love it. I will take whatever personality she brings. Though it was quite the trip to Chicago last Wednesday. Luckily, Grandma Debbie was there to help. Sophie was all over the place on the plane. On the way home, we were able to settle her down by letting her drink out of a real cup. That is one of her most favorite things to do. She will drink and drink and drink out of a real cup. If she has some cytra-K left to drink (it's a powder mixed with water that is suppose to help prevent kidney stones), put it in a real cup and she will drink it. Oh, by the way, her head is looking great. I think only 2 more trips to Chicago and 6 more weeks in the helmet and we are done!!!

I've been hearing that Sophie has been a much busier person since she's been taking less medication!! I can't wait to see all of you this weekend. Grandma Deb says Sophie has quite a throwing arm. When we get her and Ryan together this summer we might all need helmets since he also seems to believe that if you can lift it you can use it as a projectile!!

Bet you are counting down the days till you can cross that every other week Chicago trip off your schedule!

See you in a couple days.

Love,
Barb
