Thanks to all the snow we've been getting we had to reschedule Luella's neuropsych evaluation for the second time! Who would have thought we'd have issues with snow and ice in April!? As it began to sleet and snow Monday morning I got a hold of Jim who was still in New Jersey for work and we decided not to risk it and reschedule. We weren't even sure if and when he would make it home Monday night and then we would have had to leave at 5am on Tuesday for the appointment! Jim's plane was delayed by a couple hours so it was later when he got home. We were glad we didn't have to get up at 4:00! It did turn out to be quite slippery here this morning and school was two hours late again. I was worried that we'd have to wait a whole month to get Luella in but Dr. Bishop herself called me and worked us in for next week!! Hopefully we are DONE with winter by then! Bless my dear neighbor for clearing my driveway / sidewalk three times while Jim was gone!! I'm really tired of the snow and cold!
Luella is currently 8 days seizure free! She did have a seizure April 15th but remained seizure free the entire time Jim was gone! We pray that we can just keep adding days! About the last seizure... I had just told Ashlyn I needed to run upstairs and that she should keep an eye on Luella. They were already playing catch with a balloon and Luella was having fun. I didn't even get to the top of the stairs and Ashlyn yelled that Luella was having a seizure. Ashlyn recognized the seizure immediately and lowered Luella to the floor before she fell! She did exactly what she was supposed to do! It was another more violent seizure and she bit her tongue again but she was feeling almost back to normal within a few hours. I'm so thankful for Burke, Ashlyn and Ryker and the help they are with Luella!!
I've made it through Jim being gone many days! He does have one more trip coming up and then hopefully he can be home for awhile. I've gotten a pretty good routine down though! :-) Now we pray that we can actually get Luella to her appointment next week and that she will handle the long day of testing okay! Thank you all for your prayers and continued encouragement!
