is still hanging at home with me and Kobe during the day. This pic was taken at 10 am this morning, when he should've been at school.
He is now on an antibiotic for a 'pink' ear (not really infected but on the verge of it, so we are giving him an antibiotic anyway as it could be causing some of the discomfort and/or extra seizures), and we have also increased the other two seizure meds that he is already on (he has three seizure meds all together and one had already been increased).
It usually takes a little while for them to build up in his system, so it may still be a few days until we see any changes, if there are any at all. Fingers crossed that it will work because if not, that means we have to swap his meds all together and that means even more agitation as he comes off other meds.
I'm actually enjoying having him at home with me even when he is cranky, and it's nice not having to get him out the door early in the morning to get to school on time. The boys have started catching the bus to school in the morning when I don't have to go out, which makes things so much easier (although I hate having to pay for it!). We are very lucky that the bus stop is literally about 100 metres from our house.
Noah's carer Di has been a lifesaver and has offered to come up to sit with Noah for an hour or two at different times so I can get out, go to the gym and get some jobs done. It's also a blessing that she just lives down the road from us, and is so good with Noah and loves him just as much as we do.
Hopefully only a few more mornings of this, and things will be back to normal again (trying to be very optomistic - I'm sure it won't be that easy :)
