In Which I Don't Have the Energy

What a week.

I don't have much energy to get into any detail over the events of the past few days, but I promise to have that for Monday's post. Here is what I have the energy and cognitive capacity to tell you:
  • Baby Badass started presenting symptoms that were seizure-like last Friday night. We had her evaluated at the ER, and saw her PCP on Tuesday. She was admitted to a Children's Hospital Tuesday night.
  • Through the course of a 24-hour EEG and an MRI, she was diagnosed with Infantile Spasms.
  • We have a treatment plan involving medication and regular check-ups with a neurologist and a pediatric ophthalmologist (more on that later).
We are home now, and doing our best to get rested up and back on a regular schedule. The Boss and I are so lucky to have such a great kid. She was so incredibly tolerant and well behaved at the hospital, it made the whole ordeal easier to handle. 

Thanks to all of you who offered your support on Twitter. It was comforting to know we had people rooting for us.

Have a good weekend, everyone.

Oh my gosh. I haven't checked Twitter in a while and this is a shock.

So happy to hear she is doing well. Let me know if there is anything I can do. You guys will get to the bottom of this... you are awesome parents and she is a luck lil' gal.

Hugs to you all.

Just saw this, and since I'm not a Twitter user, I had no idea. Sorry to hear it's been such a rough week for the three of you. Glad to hear she's doing better, especially in light of all of the tests etc. Best of luck to all of you!

So scary, thinking of you, the Boss, and Baby Badass.

Baby Badass will come through this stronger than ever. Look at her parents!

To All: Thank you all for your sentiments. The Boss, Baby Badass and I are all doing better now that we've had a day or so to rest and recover. We have a long road ahead of us, but we'll make it, especially with all the support we have around us.

So sorry to hear all the details of the situation, but I'm happy to hear that she is still safe and sound with you guys.

Praying for you.
