Sleep for everyone!

Reagan had another great night's sleep last night (thank you God)! She woke up only once at 1am and I gave her some juice to get her back to sleep. Then I woke up at 4am, fed her a bottle as she slept, and with a full tummy she didn't wake up again until 8am. I'm hoping that maybe this is all related to her state of ketosis improving (and not just being full) and that the recent changes we've made to her diet are a step in the right direction. Hopefully we'll begin seeing less seizures as her levels of beta-hydroxybutyrate go down to a more appropriate level. She's still having a lot right now and we've been having to give her clonazepam twice a day to help lessen them a little. Even with all the seizures lately she's been a relatively happy baby. Maybe the extra sleep is doing everyone some good. Here's a picture to leave you laughing. Bear was lying on his back the other day and I took a picture of him because he looked so goofy (he looks like a vampire bat). I was cracking up as I took this!

Ha, ha...I love the picture of Bear! Sometimes the "other children" really know how to make us smile!

I am so happy to hear how well Reagan is doing right now. Hopefully this is the step in the right direction, and just a small indication of the bigger and better things to come!

we are thrilled to hear she is doing so well. Great news about her sleeping better. Thats something we still long for in our house. Super news and we pray she will continue on this path and her seizures will soon be gone forever
