Mira was back to her usual self by this morning. It was easy to tell that she was doing better - her hands and feet weren't clammy, she showed some brief interest in her toy, but mainly we could tell based on her appetite. She drank 3 bottles this morning in succession. She had a fairly smooth rest of the day and her appetite continued, until dinner time, where she was a little irritable, probably because she was still hungry after a few bottles - making up for lost time from yesterday, where she only drank a single bottle all day long, because of the dystonia.

Mira had a rough day today. This morning she wouldn't drink anything and seemed a little off at breakfast, which is usually a sign that something is brewing. Sure enough, by mid-morning, she was in full-dystonia mode, complete with clammy hands, sweating, rigid legs, and an altered state overall. Her disposition didn't change much over the course of the day and we could not get her to drink anything the entire afternoon. Finally, the dystonia seemed to relent about bedtime and she managed to drink a bottle, albeit very, very slowly, right before she went to bed. She was very twitchy all through this, similar to what she was dealing with just a few weeks ago, minus the tonic-clonics. Maybe it's just my imagination, but these episodes are becoming increasingly common with her.
