You Guys Are The Best! And My Husband Is A Hero.

It's true.  Thanks for letting me rant and rave.  Thanks for your comments and your telephone calls.  I can't imagine what it would be like to stomp around and yell all by myself.  It would be extraordinarily lonely.

Last night I was laid flat by (surprise, surprise) a migraine!  It was the worst one that I had had in quite a while; in fact, I wondered if I should go to the hospital because it was reminiscent of the pain that I was feeling with the eclampsia back when Nina was born.  My fantastic husband took over.  "Did you take some painkillers?  Okay.  You're not dying, it's just a headache." He told me that he loved me and sent me to bed.  Then he stayed up with Nina until midnight.  This is the man that is asleep by ten every evening because he gets up at 5:00, and sometimes earlier.  Now he's shambling around all zombie-like, but he's still smiling.  Marrying him was the best decision that I ever made, no doubt.

So we leave in half an hour for the MRI.  Wish us luck!  And when we get back...we get to do it again!  More sleep deprivation for tomorrow's EEG, hooray!  :P

Don't worry about the effects of sleep deprivation on epileptic kids: I did at first but all that happened was I was a nervous wreck and my daughter was fine, with the occasional extra seizure. I mean, you do what you need to do, you do your best to ensure her quality of life, and then accept whatever 'best' turns out to be. I hope your MRI and EEG can tell you something about the nature of her seizures. We found nothing abnormal at all in my daughter's tests, which is both good and bad. But after a year of medication, she is doing fantastic. One step at a time! That's great Nina takes medication willingly - count your lucky stars! Good luck to you and her (and the rest)!
