Today I’m thankful that I know I’ve made the right decision. It’s been over a month now that Aidan has been off of his seizure meds. He’s back and ready to party. While I knew the meds made him a zombie, I didn’t realize how much I felt like they stole him from me until I had him back. Aidan is so much more alert and his giggle is in full swing. He doesn’t particularly like to sit still anymore as anytime he sees me he reaches out his hands to say, “Let’s walk somewhere, mom.” This kid wants to move, see, do and I love it.
I feel like I’m back as well. Aidan still has frequent seizures but I’m not counting them so they’re not constantly on my mind. While I know things may get worse in the future, I fully intend to enjoy the present while I can. It’s less stressful all around.
