Happy Day Streak Ends at 1 Day

After Mira's stellar day yesterday with zero irritability, I had my fingers crossed for a repeat performance. Mira decided to put an end to her stretch of calm demeanor by waking up on the wrong side of bed this morning, She was really cranky. Fussing and crying, I got her changed, dressed, and in her chair and from there, she lasted about 10 minutes before she was in full irritability mode, just crying her eyes out. She managed to finish a bottle through the tears, but obviously, something was really bothering her. She didn't have any tonic-clonics, only a few mild head drops - nothing like she has been experiencing the past few mornings, so I don't think it was seizure related.

So back to bed she went. She proceeded to take about a 30 minute nap, which I suppose isn't really a nap when you just woke up 30 minutes prior. Here was the interesting part. She woke up, started kicking her feet and vocalizing a little, then progressed into doing this for the next 20 minutes:

Sarah and I have seen her do these abdominal crunches before, but she was really getting into it today. She was laughing and giggling the whole time. Mira has abs of steel by now. It was some serious movement on her part, especially this early in the morning.

The rest of the day was similar - up and down, happy and sad, sleepy and excited. She didn't have any seizure activity the rest of the day, but alternated between naps, abdominal crunches, and being mildly fussy. She was all over the emotional spectrum today, having periods of belly laughing to tears streaming down her face she was crying so hard. This afternoon, Unhappy Hour was in full swing - she was really irritable from about 4:00-5:00pm and hated being in her bed, but was only slightly less fussy doing anything else. She eventually settled down around 5:30pm, but by then, she was exhausted.

A strange, roller coaster of a day for Miss Mira today.
