Alex had a fun time last night opening the door and handing out candy.
Hope you all had a frightful night as well.

He had a good night and ate well. He was ready for the bus. Forgot his wrist band but there is one in his backpack.

Seizure Sunday

Well no Alex at school this morning.

We had a pretty good weekend but this AM he had seizures and we had to give him DIASTAT.

Friday and Saturday were fine. We did lots of train and plane watching, even got to go by the Harley store again. Then Sunday 8 AM he had a single seizure. He got up okay around 10 AM and seemed okay,. We spend the day doing yard work and then some late afternoon train watching.

Come time for bed we ask he to go potty. And there, straining on the pot, he goes into a seizure. We expected more but nothing till 6 AM.

Seizure Day

No Alex at school again today. Yesterday he had seizures at 5 and 8 AM. Then later more between 3 and 4 PM. We were able to keep him home and give him DIASTAT but that means he will not be in any shape to day to enjoy bowling. Maybe tomorrow.
