We’re five weeks into the steroid injections with one week to go. We think they’ve been successful so far but will wait for his next EEG to really know for sure. It’s been a challenge. We’ve had to keep him home from all social functions and church. We’ve had to watch him in pain with steroids, teething and constipation. We’ve had many more sleepless nights since he’s had to sleep with us for the second half of every night. And then there’s the constant worry that the seizures will come back. But he’s been a brave soldier, most nights not even crying at his shot. And as we’ve tapered off, the smiles and the sleep are coming back and the Oliver we know is emerging again.
In other good news, we’ve finally got chairs ALL the way around our table! We sold our old chairs when we moved into our new house and in typical fashion, I’ve survived off of a bench and recently, two knock-off tolix chairs. But it’s been forever that I’ve been searching for an affordable option for the other side of the table. And when Target put out a Windsor chair in several fun colors, I knew I had my winner.
