We are weaning Zonegran right now...it's not working. His absent seizures are out of control...but on a good note, the drop seizures have decreased. To the GOOD NEWS: Cole has done some pretty AMAZING things...in 1 WEEK! Everything he has done last week amazed us! We have been waiting for a VERY long time & it was fun to see them in such a short time. I took pictures of each one:
Drank out of a different cup then he usually does
(if he feels something different in his mouth then his usual sippy cup, he freaks OUT! This shows us that he can make a connection that he can get a drink from something other then his "cup")
Going down the stairs! -just the last step-
(he had the BIGGEST smile on his face...we cheered for him)
Going up the stairs!
(not all the way...yet.)
Playing w/water bottles
(he listens to the sound & squishes the plastic)
Playing with toys
(I line his toys up on the table & when he gets up they will ALL be scatted all over the house. I love it! I seriously look around at the mess he makes & it makes me SO HAPPY!)
THIS IS THE BIG ONE!!!
(I was SO shocked...i think even his therapist was, when we hid cheerios under bean bags...and...HE FOUND THEM!!! This shows "object permanence"...he understands that the object is still there, even though he can't see it.)
-I think he's disappointed nothing is under that one-
BUT, now he thinks he should eat "little objects"...like pieces of the carpet.
Sit in his chair
(if I tell him to sit as I pat the chair he will "try" to sit in it!)
Reaching up on the counter
(I LOVE this! he reaches up to get his drink...so CUTE!!)
A neighbor had a Toy Story Birthday Party...and had "Bullseye" at the Party...Cole got to ride him.
This little boy of ours AMAZES me!!! I seriously am SO lucky to have him. Every thing he does makes us smile. We watch him run around the house and do the cute corky things he does & it's just so cute! I love this little guy...good thing cuz I get to keep him FOREVER & EVER!!!
