Chill

Reagan slept well last night and woke up this morning super sweet and super calm. She had speech therapy an hour early this morning so we could leave in time to head downtown to her drs appt with the pediatric reproductive endocrinologist. I dropped Ryan at school and then came back and we loaded Reagan into the car. She was still pretty flat this morning. Not serious, but solemn. Hard to get any response out of her. This is a new doctor we're seeing as we weren't totally happy with her previous endocrinologist and this drs specialty is the exact reason we're seeing endocrinology, so it seemed like a perfect fit. Plus she came highly recommended by Reagan's neurologist...apparently he sends a lot of his seizure kiddos to her. We really liked her. As Reagan's nurse said, "she's someone you'd like to have a beer with". She gets it. Yes, we do still have to wait and see...when the dreaded P word will show its face and how her body is going to respond to those fluctuations in hormone...but once it starts, she's fully on board with whatever we want to do to handle it. She said it's about 50/50 as to whether or not it will affect her seizure control. She also said she thinks we've still got a year or so before it happens...so that's a relief (hopefully she's right). So at this point we just wait. No need to check hormones again. We already know they're high. We'll just touch base with her when we need her (hopefully it'll be a while). She also referred to Reagan as very "chill" but looking oh so cute in her leopard print! The rest of the day we just took it easy. A little too easy maybe! She fell asleep just before her teacher/vision therapist were about to come and then slept just long enough to miss her window of opportunity for school! Silly girl. She does that a lot. She was really great the rest of the day/night. Super laid back and sweet. Fell asleep on her own tonight no problem. Hoping for another good night's sleep tonight for my girl.
