Medical Update

Quick update...It happened again. Different play-date, different day but the same thing. Another seizure. 911 was called. The ambulance showed up. I ended up taking him home and letting him sleep it off. Just over an hour later, he was out playing with the neighborhood kids on the trampoline (with Erik too). Can you believe they both happened at other people's houses? It is crazy! The doctor had us go back to the children's hospital this morning. Now, since he has had 2 seizures he is more likely to have more. Andrew is now going to be taking medicine to control the seizures. We also know what to do when it happens, so will not have to call 911 each time. Hopefully, life will get back to normal again. (I just will be Andrew's shadow and my cell phone will be charged always.) I will be writing about other things soon.
We were just driving home from swimming lessons. We could hear an ambulance coming in the distance. I asked Andrew if they were coming for him again. His eye got big, he smiled an excited smile and said, "I don't know." (I told him I was kidding..he just kept smiling thinking I was a weirdo) I guess he really doesn't remember why they show up for him.

Twice, wow, that poor little boy. You are so calm. I think I would be going crazy. I'm glad they are starting him on med's. We love you Andrew!
