Mea Culpa Belated Celebration Friday


What happens when the holidays roll around, Mom gets a bad cold, and age creeps up on her????  She forgets a very important day!!!!!!  She missed letting us celebrate Ciara's Fifth Birthday with everyone this past Wednesday.  For some reason, Mom has always thought of Ciara's birth day being 12/12/09 when in fact it is 12/10/09.  We are pretty she goofed a couple of years ago too.  But all is good, it is never too late to celebrate!!!  So join us in wishing our sweet girl a very big happy birthday.



And many thanks to Ann of Zoolatry for the pretty graphic.


We are also happy to report that she is doing so much better the past few weeks. After a one month change in her thyroid medication dose, her levels have come down to an acceptable level (although Mom is hoping they come down a bit more) AND most importantly, no new seizures after starting her anti-seizure meds again.  By circumstance, both medicine changes happened on the same day.  The day that she had her thyroid blood draw as part of her routine care was also the day her cluster seizure episode began. We can't tell for sure if the new and improved Ciara is due to the thyroid med change or the addition of the anti-seizure meds. Mom thinks the thyroid issue has a lot to do with the seizures.  No worries, she is doing well and that is all that matters.  It is so wonderful to see her so much more relaxed, no more of that terrible anxiety.  As you can see, we have lots of reasons to celebrate her special day.
