Two Steps Forward...

and one step back. Brady and I made a quick trip to Utah over the weekend for my sister's bridal shower and my brother's mission homecoming. It was a wonderful visit full of quality time with both sides of the family. Brady loved playing with his cousins, but for some unknown reason had a seizure during the trip. He had another seizure in the bucket swing at school yesterday morning so there will be no more playing outside until the weather cools down.

I took the seizure counter down for now because I just don't have it in me to watch those numbers climb then fall back to zero again. Brady's Keppra dosage was increased and we also switched back to the brand name drug as we recently started using a generic version thanks to pressure from our favorite insurance company. We are hoping that the drug switch will fix the problem... fingers crossed.

I have been MIA from the blogging world for a bit as I made a goal to stop blogging at work. Today I'm granting myself an exception because I'm grumpy! I hope you all are well and we will be checking in soon!

Hi Guys!
I'm sorry to hear about Brady's seizures returning. Hopefully the med increase and the switch will make a difference. Thinking of you guys.

Sorry to hear about the recent seizures. We had major discussions with our Dr about brand vs generic recently also. She said they often see when they switch kids from brand to generic that they have issues with seizures and so our Dr only deals with brand name. However like you said it is a mess when it comes to insurance. Hope things get back on track and you have a right to be grumpy :)

dang it. dang it. dang it. i'm a fan of brand names :) i totally vote to stick to it. the insurance company will have to figure it out...

you are in our thoughts, Brady will become stable again, and soon enough the counter will be back up, passing a year milestone again.

so sorry.

please blog your heart out, and find a BIG gallon-sized container of starbucks chocolate-covered almonds mocha icea cream. ;)

I'm so sorry to hear your unfortunate news. Man. We are keeping our fingers crossed that this was just a fluke and placing all blame on the darn generic perscription drug.

Hope you are having a better week this week. We're thinking of you!
