These past few months have been unreal. Was December just a bad dream? Even still, I hope I never forget it. I hope I never stop fully appreciating the small moments. They’re not guaranteed.
Reese has a tricycle and has enjoyed being pushed along on it. Yesterday, she started pedaling. I can’t help but think that before all of this, I would have assumed that this was a normal skill for a 2 year old and thought nothing of it. And really, it is normal. But when I see Reese happily pedaling along so proudly, it makes my heart happy.
On Monday, Reese had a routine 30 minute EEG and I was feeling pretty good about things. And then Reese had a questionable twitch. I had mixed feelings about it – I was glad that if it had to happen, it was caught on the EEG. But I was very upset that it happened.
I kept reminding myself that regardless of what it was, being seizure free for nearly 2 months is nothing short of amazing. Unfortunately, it seems my happiness is pretty well linked with Reese’s condition. So I was pretty distracted for the couple days until our appointment with our neurologist.
Great news – it was just a twitch! Reese’s EEG is still considered normal!!
While in the hospital in December, our neurologist described Reese’s EEG as “scary.” Scary to a neurologist means VEERRRYYYY scary to the mother of that child. Boy, oh, boy… we have come a LONG way in just a few short months!
