Health Update

So it's been a whole since I posted an update. It's been an interesting last couple of weeks. 2 weeks ago my body hit rock bottom and I felt like I reverted backwards with my seizures. In a matter of 4 to 5 days I had about 7 or 8 seizures and my body rejected food and water. I lost about 10 pds in about a week.

I had gone to the ER to find out that I was dehydrated my seizure meds weren't being processed by my body. I went into a funk again and anyone that suffers from Epilespy probably can relate.



We went to my nuros for an appt to see what's going on. My doctor doubled my depakote and for 2 days after that I pretty much sleeper the whole time because I was so out of it. I went almost 5 days without eating.

After 5 days with the new meds I felt better than I have in months. I felt my energy come back. Since than I have only had to seizures and I am doing loads better.

I am truly learning to live day to day, as this affects me in so many different ways. Yesterday was a scary day as I learned to not swim alone anymore. So I was laying out in our mini pool(our spa we use as a pool during the summer) I was laying on a floating tying to get some sun and the next thing I know I am coming to as Em was trying to see if I was ok. We think I had a seizure while laying there. Sure glad Em came home when she did, cause I could have fell in and drowned. Note to self, never go swimming alone again. At least I got some sun and didn't get sun burned. Thanks Emmy for coming and checking on me. God knows how long I would have been out there If she hadn't come home. Thanks Emmy!

May the storm always be behind me and not rain down on me!!

Over all, I am doing much better than I have in months but still have a ways to go. Thank you all for the continued support. Our family forever thanks you.
