Sorry I meant to update on Monday after we saw the neurologist.

Emeric was put on Lamictal, in addition to the Dilantin. As soon as the Lamictal reaches a high enough level we'll cut out the Dilantin.

Last night Emeric had a lot of cluster seizures again. He woke up from sleep and acted really out of it. In about 15 minutes he had around 10 seizures. Jake and I were deciding whether or not we should give him the Diastat. We probably should have but we were really nervous and hoping they'd just stop on their own. Which they did thankfully!

This morning he woke up with a low grade fever & runny nose so I'm sure that's part of it. Fever lowers your seizure threshold so they want us to keep him fever down.

The girls have been doing well. They got to go to grandma's on Monday while Emeric had his appt. and they always enjoy that. They never want to come home! :) Kaydence has been doing really well with going potty on the toilet. Thank goodness! I was getting sick of that! She's also been off dairy products for a couple months and doing good. I think the biggest improvement is she's sleeping better. Plus we're all eating healthier! :)

We've started cutting out anything with High Fructose Corn Syrup in it from our diets. Unfortunately EVERYTHING has HFCS in it, so it's hard to find good food! If you read labels you'll see even "healthy" whole grain bread has HFCS in it!

Well, that's all for now folks! ;)
