Day 46

Well....I hate to say, we weren't able to bring her home. But...that's ok. We saw the specialist yesterday & in not so many words, he said, "her seizures are not controlled & it's unacceptable. We must take a more aggressive approach & get them under control, so this is what we are going to do. We will try giving her B6 (vitamin supplement...has been know to cause seizures if she is lacking), if that doesn't work we will try a change in her diet, basically putting her on high fats. If that doesn't work, there is a Valium injection that can be given, much like a diabetic does that may help as well."

I was very pleased with his response & forwardness. He also mentioned that a trip to Seattle might be in our near future. I told Kevin today that if that is what has to be done, then so be it. Whatever it takes to get this all figured out.

One of the side affects to the B6 is sleepiness & she could stop because of that they are going to keep her until at least Saturday. They are giving her 3 days on the B6 to see if it makes any difference.

We did room-in with her last night (how great that was). She passed with flying colors, (so did mom & dad!).

Anyways, I will keep you posted. So now we are shooting for Saturday (which is still the end of the week, LOL!)

Thank you again for all of your prayers!
