Rough Start, Better Afternoon
Mira started off the day with a heavy tonic-clonic seizure. She was in her chair for about 20 minutes and without warning, she went straight into it without any myoclonics beforehand. She had already had something to drink and her meds, so it was atypical for her to have one like that. She rebounded from it fairly quickly, within about 20 minutes or so.
The rest of the morning was much better for her - no seizure activity and she was in a pleasant mood, all things considered. She took a fairly long nap after lunch and woke up hungry and a little irritable, but it didn't last long. After a couple of bottles and some quality time with her toy, she remained in a positive mood the rest of the evening, even through her bath.
I managed to catch her babbling a little but during this extended time with her toy, but was cut short about 20 seconds in when she decided she was done. As you can see at the end of the video, when Mira is done with her toy, she grabs it (always with hr right hand) and tries to shove/throw it off her tray. Since we have it doubled-strapped with Theraband, it makes it difficult for her to fling it off. She now has managed to collectively push the entire tray, plexi stand, and the toy completely off. She has some serious upper body strength.
Mira had some solid fussy spells yesterday, but overall, it's been a pretty decent weekend, despite being trapped indoors because of all of the snow.
