Keto Day 4 and heading home
I then had a good chat with her dietitian and neurologist. We had her play mat on the floor and again they both joined us on the mat. The neurologist was on his haunches and so Asher headed over to take a seat on his lap. She enjoyed some cuddle time with him and got some tickles out of him too.
So I spent the morning packing. A much bigger task that what that sounds. I had the big rucksack on my back, 3 bags over the back of Asher's pram, and then Toby organised a trolley for me that we loaded up (and one of the available nurses pushed to the entrance for me).
I then got Asher's prescription into the Keto calculator that I had downloaded and started trying to sort out a menu for dinner for her. She had seen the others eating pasta when we got home and she desperately wanted some. So I knew I couldn't give her a shake but had to give her something to chew. So I came up with a menu and although she was at first upset about not getting pasta, she then accepted the "no" and so enjoyed her dinner. After these she had a bowl of strawberries in a floor of cream.
By 6 she was a bit restless, so Hezekiah joined us for a walk up to check the post. She was so happy to get out.
So that was Asher's 4th birthday. I was so busy I didn't get to take many pictures. I was thankful we had her cake and celebrated last week (hopefully I will get that blog post done soon).
It was so funny today as she didn't want Happy Birthday sung for her and refused to sing it. She enjoyed it last week and sang it herself a number of times. So I think she saw it as having happened last week and it was done. So at least she isn't aware of the strange birthday she has had.
Thank you so much to all those who have been praying for us through this week.
