12 days and counting...

It has been 12 days with NO SEIZURES!!! YEAH!!! It has been wonderful!!! We have an appointment with her neuro next Thursday so we will see what he has to say about all of this. I would love to see what her EEG pattern looks like now. She has been doing so many new things lately...

  • She is clapping her hands. She claps her hands for all kinds of reasons. She claps when she just did something she is proud of (very adorable especially when you see the big smile on her face). She claps when you sing to her or she hears music. She sometimes even claps for no apparent reason (or least any reason that I can think of but who knows what goes through her mind).
  • She is following one step commands. She knows what her choo-choo train is and will turn it on when I ask her to (if she is in the mood) without me pointing or looking at it. She points to the kitchen sink when Daddy says it is time to brush your teeth. She points to the light switch when you ask her if she wants to turn it on (which she could do for hours). She walks to the kitchen counter when you ask her if she wants to eat (if she in hungry).
  • Her walking and balance is so much better.
  • She is much more alert and does not fatigue as easily.
Her therapist were all very proud of her this past week. They were impressed with all the new things she was doing and just her behavior in general. Sophie is just more alive...just more with it. It is hard to explain in words...you can just see it in her eyes...she is just much more a part of this world.
