Well...........That Was Brief
After Mira's miraculous turnaround last week, she had an incredibly irritable weekend. As quickly as her mood shifted 180 degrees, she spun back around and was right back where she was before. I have no idea what to do sometimes and it feels like everything I try to do to and help, is just one gigantic fail. As soon as I open my mouth, I think i jinx her positive streak. We have so few options these days and it seems nothing helps for an extended period for her. She just has good days and bad - lately is has been a lot of very fussy days, minus the 4 or 5 day stretch we had last week. She was having all sorts of lightning jerks all weekend - no major seizures, but certainly small seizures rising to the surface and causing issues with her. She was fussy this morning before the bus arrived, but apparently at school, she has a decent day. She had a big tonic-clonic this morning, which didn't completely wipe her out, but her teacher said it was definitely an intense seizure. We will keep on the pyridoxine for now and keep riding the roller coaster. It seemed to help break the cycle, albeit very briefly.
