Sunday training

Although very cold overnight, this afternoon the sun has come out and Alex and I enjoy watching the trains. They move rail cars of lumber every Sunday. So we get Mac Donald's and then hang for a couple of hours.

Doctor's visit

Today Mom and Marycke are off to see Dr. Szabo. They are going to review the weird blood levels. And as it turns out they decide to take Alex off Trileptal and put him back on Felbatol.

This will take nearly 3 months. We did have good control in years past. But then there were safety concerns.

So after 2 hours they finally got to see the Doctor for 20 minutes or so.

Much Improved

Alex is much improved. After the blood test Monday he seemed to perk up. It also sinc ehe has returned to school. Maybe he was just too comfortable here at home. Maybe we let him sleep too much. Whatever it was, he seems to be returning to his normal routine.

Wednesday, horseback resumed. Alex again gets to ride Cheyenne. Marycke helps out by walking along side. They see to have a good time.

Not so great

Another day without seizures but maybe Alex is having little ones we just can't see. He seems to be sleeping a lot. Like 14-16 hours a day and is drooling a lot. He does not want to watch trains, do puzzles, eat, drink ...
No talking. No alllll rights!. Just a lot of leaning, drooling, and eye fluttering. We miss our happy buddy!
Maybe his meds are out of balance? Marycke is going to get a blood test tomorrow.
