Back to Johns Hopkins... The trip went well. Sophie was great, as always. The appointment was somewhat depressing, as always. I hate taking Sophie to her neurology appointments. I always end up asking the questions that never have positive answers. The doctor convinced us to continue with the diet for another 3 months. Why not? What other options do we have at this point? Sophie has already tried and failed 7 different seizure medications. It is all a waiting game now. All I can do is hope and pray that Sophie's seizures will miraculously stop. I say miraculously because none of her neurologist seem to think they will completely go away. They all think that this is something she will have to deal with for the rest of her life. Very depressing!!! I can deal with her developmental delays. I cannot deal with her seizures. It is a daily battle for Sophie and it is heartbreaking to watch. We are trying to wean Clobazam. She was on 10mg a day and we are trying to wean 2.5mg every two weeks. Once we wean the Clobazam, then we are going to add Keppra.
I will post all about Florida in another post. I have a lot of pictures and video to download. Though to sum it up...it was a much needed break from our daily routine and we had an absolute blast.
I will also post later about the IFSP as I have some good news to share.
