A Perpetual State of Exhaustion
Mira continues to be quiet and really out of it. Ever since the weekend, she has become increasingly withdrawn, having a dazed expression and seemingly unmotivated to do much of anything. Every time we try to put her toy in front of her, it provokes a seizure. For awhile, it was every other time, but now, it is just a given - it just simply triggers a seizure, every time. It feels as though if Mira isn't having a seizure, she is recovering from one. It is just a constant cycle of seizure activity, being post-ictal, and then a slow recovery, only to lead into another seizure. This cycle is keeping her in a perpetual state of exhaustion. We haven't made any adjustments to her medications yet, as we were waiting until the weekend to start. We want to be able to keep a close watch on her when we start the Vimpat wean.
