Jude slept through the night for the most part, or I just didn't hear him get up. I walked in there to check on him this morning, and the boy was sideways in his crib with his arms in touchdown formation. It's clear he was NOT dreaming about the Cowboys. Anyway, he had wet his crib again which is the third day in a row. I even got some nighttime diapers last night, but it's clear the new amount of fluid Jude is taking in is taking it's toll at night. Jude is doing very well regarding aligning his hands, and pushing his head up. His therapist was very impressed yesterday when she came to see him. I have noticed a recent spike in his seizures/spasms when I am talking to Jude. My thought is that Jude gets very excited when I get home, and it's over stimulation, therefore sending him into the seizure. We have also noticed some very large spasms before he goes to bed. This could be another issue with the Depakene vs the Depakote he was on, and his levels are dropping. He will be seeing the neurologist soon to asses the situation. The neurologist has also mentioned doing a sleep study with Jude, and another sleeping eeg.
This weekend we are having a garage sale at our house. I was immersed in clothes, and other items in my loft last night, and attacked all of it with price stickers. It felt good to clean out items we would no longer need, and I am not done yet. I plan on attacking more closets tonight. It made me realize that it's time to do some cleaning in my life as well. I was talking with my best friend in the world Ginger the other day, and she pointed out to me some eye opening events. I think sometimes we have to let go of people that do not treat us as we should be treated. Sometimes we just need to simply things as much as possible. I am obviously a very busy person between my home life, my work, my side job, and the charity. I have little time to deal with people that are inconsiderate.
On Halloween we are having our third annual haunted cemetery at our house, and we will be accepting donations to Emily's Smile Boxes. Right now our donations are so low that we are questioning if we will be able to pull off the Christmas box making party. So if you are friends, or family that know where we live than stop by with your kiddo's, and see us on Halloween. If they are to scared to come to the door, I will bring a lollipop out to them!
I am in a contest at work regarding life insurance. If you are in TX, and have thought about obtaining some life insurance let me know. The most under-insured possession in America is our lives which should be the top insurance product sold. Nothing is more precious than our lives. If you are not in TX, and do not have life insurance, or only have insurance through your work, please consider getting a policy, and leave your family in a better position.
