2015 comes to an end
Asher sure does enjoy this game.
We are so pleased she has been able to enjoy the pool so much over this last week. Last summer it got to the point where she would have a seizure within minutes of her getting in the water. So the glasses do seem to be helping.
Dad with his three little monkeys. We tried the vest on Asher, but it's way to big. I think if she had one that fitted, she would be off. She is a little fish in the water and kicks so well. She just wants to swim.
Hopefully it won't be too long before Hezekiah gets the courage to join in the fun in the "big pool".
We picked up this album for free at the shops the other day. Thankfully we did have a complete set of dominoes to fill it. Asher discovered it today and has so much fun taking them all out. She tries to put them back, but her interest gets lost after just a few. I know in time she will do more of the packing back.
This evening at 7:15 (just before bed) Asher had a 1 1/2 minute Tonic Clonic seizure. We are so pleased that she has had a wonderful 16 day break.
Interestingly, this brings the total seizures for 2015 up to 89. In 2014 she also had 89 seizures. Many children with Dravet Syndrome can have a very big increase in seizures after they are 2, so this makes us especially thankful for how well this year has gone.
Back to the pool this afternoon. Hezekiah using his pool noodle as a "blue horse".
Hezekiah showing me that he can lift his feet off the bottom of the pool. Hopefully this will help him get motivated to join the others in the big pool again.
And just like that the year comes to a close. The year has had it's challenges, but we continually see God's provision and the lessons He has for us through the trials.
