Clonazepam

The clonazepam seems to be helping. Last night (after giving her another dose at around 4:30pm) she had very few seizures (relatively speaking). And then this morning she woke up having a lot of seizures again, so I gave her another one and definitely saw a decline (she's still having them but not nearly as many or clustered one on top another). The clonazepam is not really a long term solution (it's not something that's going to stop the seizures entirely and most people eventually develop a tolerance to it) so we are still waiting to see some positive results to the change in the diet!! Come on diet...WORK!!! Reagan was a handful this morning. Her teeth are still really bothering her. She'll be fine one second, happy and smiling, and the next second she's fussing and crying. We just can't win. She did take a good long nap this afternoon and woke up in a much better mood. She was up a lot again last night. She's waking up like clockwork every morning at 7-7:30am regardless of how much she was up and down during the night...so much for sleeping in on the weekend!! Maybe for Father's Day she'll let us sleep in? I don't have my hopes up.
