A party and a seizure
And although she was away for her birthday and did get a cake on the day - we still wanted to keep up with our family cake tradition. And I am glad we did. Wonderful memories made with these cakes.
A photo with all the cakes. The original piggy bank design and then the extras I made last night (thanks to Brendon's inspiration) with the extra cake and icing we had.
Thankfully Asher had her lunch a little early today, because just as the rest of us were sitting down to have lunch, she started having a seizure. It was a 4 minute vacant and although that sounds like "no big deal" being a vacant one - it generally is with her as again her breathing wasn't great through it.
The party was planned for 2:30 and just at that time Asher had another seizure. This time 10 minutes.
If she didn't sleep - she would be walking / falling around "drunk" and unhappy. So I felt like a bit of a grouch having to keep asking the children to keep quiet.
They opened presents (above) and then played inside a bit while Rachel got her "treasure hunt" set up outside (the reason I had children inside having to "keep quiet"). Not ideal - but what can you do? At least once the hunt was ready they could head out and make some noise.
Eventually Asher was up and so we called them inside for cake. Asher wasn't happy enough to be included in the photos unfortunately. She enjoyed being a part of singing for Ruth though.
I hope you had a special day.
