39 Weeks & Busy
Unfortunately, Alistair has had a rough last week or so. Its been coming on slowly where he just seems over active, shouting more, and just disorganized in his body and eye movements. However, in the last two days its been quite bad where he goes from almost hysterical laughter to crying to whining and back again. Plus he has all these really random, jerky body movements which even happen in his sleep when we can finally get him to settle. Its bizzare and obviously upsetting for us as he was coming along so nicely. He was starting to talk back and forth, take some assisted steps, and just be progressing all in a nice direction. I guess I shouldn't be surprised but its just heart aching when you have so much hope for your little man and wham it comes to an abrupt halt or actually more like several steps backwards. The worst part is that he just isnt' enjoying himself these days and is struggling. So I have increased his antiseizure med slightly as of last night. I just feel it has something to do with a disorganized over active brain and fingers crossed this will help resolve things in the next week or so. Poor little fella. Anyhow, obviously we just hope we can get him back on track sooner than later too as it will make life a tad easier when this other kidlet decides its better to be out than in.
