Hrmm. Not much to update but I’m starting to feel guilty that I haven’t posted in a bit.
Liam is well. Little changes here and there in meds and other things but only routine changes based on growth and the like. We have started reducing a particularly aggressive seizure med which brought with it all sorts of nasty side effects to the party so that’s good. Any change to seizure meds in any direction usually brings with it some serious insomnia though and that’s bad. Especially since we are at just about the two-week mark without any night nursing help. Two weeks without Karin and I being able to sleep in the same bed. Kind of a drag. (Mind out of the gutters folks, I really am talking about sleep here since the couch next Liam’s crib is lumpy and uncomfortable.) Sleeping alone and in only small chunks is definitely starting to wear Karin and I out, but alas, we will survive just as we always have.
Christmas is fast approaching and with it Liam’s 2nd birthday on the 26th! 2 years old! I’m still not ready to wrap my brain around that as it seemed like only yesterday that we were still in the hospital. Well, yesterday and at the same time more than a lifetime ago as it’s hard to remember what life was like before he came along. Two Years. Crazy. I’ll get into that more in a post of its own.
Well I certainly thought I had more to talk about than that, but it seems I’m drawing a blank. I really do have to start jotting these things down when they hit me throughout the day because I could have sworn I had all sorts of things to talk about. Oh well.
Anyway, aside from a big old two-year old post I think I may just focus on enjoying the holidays for a while. Expect posting here to be light (or I guess lighter) until sometime next week.
I hope that you all have a happy and safe holiday!
