Long time no See

I haven't blogged in so long... I forgot how wonderful it is.  My son has ODD/ADHD he also was recently diagnosed with Light Sensitive including video game epilepsy.  They did an EEG on him and we had to wait for the results.  He had had a major seizure over spring break.  It was really bad..  He used to have feb seizures but he had since grown out of them or so I thought.  The specialist told me yes this is a form of epilepsy.  They put him on Kepra I got lots of info from the drug store.  I wasn't sure if this was something I wanted him on.  For the first day (he took the pill at night) His behavior had gotten worse. I called the Dr.  she changed it to Depakote.  Which scary enough I was highly allergic to as a child.  I don't actually touch that medicine I put it in the lid.  I don't know if I grew out of it or not.  My daughter was in a bicycle accident with a friend from school.  So much has happened.  I have been reading the bible more and doing some deep thinking.  I am hoping that this works.  He hasn't had a seizure since then.  But I don't allow him to play video games anymore.  It's hard for him to understand the Dr. said half an hour a day was ok but too me it wasn't worth the risk.  His dad thinks that it's ok and still allows it on his visits.  It's hard to explain why it's ok there and not here.  The Friday before Easter our beloved Uncle passed away.  It was such a hard thing as I didn't get a chance to say goodbye and of course I have the memories but it's not the same.  The kids got new bikes a few weeks ago so they have been riding them .  I hope to do some more blogging soon.......
