More update on possible Seizures

Today we spent a good part of the afternoon in the ER at Children's Hospital in Seattle. Caitlyn got to be transported via ambulance after having multiple episodes that the doctor said were probably seizures. Caitlyn was a trooper at the hospital. Happy most of the time. She even got overly excited when the nurse was getting ready to draw her blood, and left a nice little bite mark on my hand. The doctors consulted with neurology, and neurology felt that since we already had an EEG scheduled for May 31st, we'd be ok to wait. They gave a script for a seizure medication, and off we went. They did say if she has any more seizures to come back. Caitlyn's smile is what helped me get through the day. Thanks to Kelli and Jaymes for hanging out at the hospital with us. Caitlyn is doing better now...Took her new medicine like a champ, and fell fast asleep. Keep us in your thoughts.

Update from our Neurology Visit

Last Friday we went in for Caitlyn's Neurology appointment. Her grandma and mom went with her. She was very well behaved, and we all enjoyed the new building down at children's hospital in Seattle. Her doctor was very excited with Caitlyn's large motor progress! He did feel that there was a concern with her eye rolling. On May 31st we will be heading up to Everett Providence Hospital to have an EEG. We should know a week or two after that what's going to happen next. Keep us in your thoughts while we investigate exactly what is going on. We will update after we know something, and I will try to take a picture so that everyone can see what Caitlyn thought of her helmet!

Caitlyn's new friend

Caitlyn got a new friend! This is Toby, an 8 week old schnoodle. (poodle schnouzer mix) Toby is a great little puppy. He follows Caitlyn around trying to play with her. She's not quite sure what to think of him. I help her to pet him, and she smiles. When she is done, she gently pushes Toby away. I hope they will grow to be great friends.
