I swear I'm terrible at keeping blogs, journals and whatnot. Good thing I'm an awesome MOMMY! Well Dominic thinks so, or tells me so. :D It's been over 3 years since I've EVEN came back to Blogger, WOW! And I seriously wouldn't have, but I joined up to Google Plus and was wondering how I already had photo's connected to Google. I'm not real smart. :S A lot has happened since '08. Dominic is now almost 10! OMG double digits! And he is in grade 4 and loving that he finally has a male teacher. There is a lot that I don't/didn't like to talk about that concerns Dominic's health, but now that he is diagnosed I can breathe a sigh of relief. He was diagnosed "for sure" over a year ago with BRE Benign Rolandic Epilepsy while have a seizure during an EEG at the IWK Children's Hospital in Halifax. It was a LOOOOOOONNNNNNNGGGGGGGG 7 years with the "unknown" and the run around we were given. Still it's scary and I don't get much sleep, it's a relief to know that he'll outgrow his epilepsy and lead a normal life. He leads a pretty normal life as it is, since his seizure are more now while he sleeps, which wasn't the case in the early stages of his toddler years. Sleepovers are always stressful for me as I worry that he won't get to bed early enough, since his seizures are mostly triggered by being stressed, sleep deprived or before he gets a cold/flu. It takes him minutes to recover from his episode and it takes me days to actually get a good nights sleep. Which I should be getting now since he's sleeping peacefully while I tired to resuscitate an old blog that really never had life brought to it. hahaha I will be back to explain more on Dominic's health. Night World.
