Doctor, dogs, digital and a digger
Her doctor was very pleased to hear that it had been 4 weeks since her last seizure. We are not sure if it is the increase in her AED or the fact that she got onto high doses of glyconutrients (both just after her last seizures) or a combination of the two. We do all agree to just stick with what we are doing and hopefully things will just keep improving from here.
What I was very pleased about was that when I told him "it will be 4 weeks tomorrow" he said "you must have been saying a lot of prayers." I immediately acknowledged that yes, we had been praying a lot and we also had many people all around the world praying for Asher. What a wonderful testimony to have her doctor acknowledge that this is an answer to prayer.
He was again very pleased with how well she is doing developmentally. We spoke about some possible side effects that we have noticed since she started this new drug 7 weeks ago - but at this stage it is going a lot better than the first AED and we are very thankful for that.
We managed to get Ruth to her ballet lesson on time on our way home. The other children had been at the Love's home and so Rachel just stayed with them and got a lift to her ballet (as their one daughter is in Rachel's class). Rachel then joined them for their St John meeting afterwards. She had such a good time we are looking at doing it this way every week. Rachel is thrilled. More time with her friends and all the enjoyment of the St John meetings too.

And then in the afternoon I finally got my new camera set up. I'm not sure what I was taking a photo of here - it may have just been to take a photo. :-)
I just love how well she has captured Hezekiah's smile and Hannah's grin. This photo makes me smile every time I look at it.
The six of them (4 kids and 2 dogs) had a great time.
It's a common site to see sticks in hand and "sword fights" going on. So although he is surrounded by girls there are a lot of "boy" type games happening. :-)
