Many people have written asking how Byron is doing after his second seizure and I’m happy to report he is doing very very well.
Twice a day he takes an increased dose of seizure medicine, which seems to be working. At first I thought there were no side effects but with the increase I have noticed a few minor ones.
-He’s a bit more sensitive to lots of stimulation; noise, many things moving around at once (e.g. groups of kids), light.
-His patience is shorter; he seems to get frustrated more easily
-He’s a bit surly and grouchy at times. This could be a factor of his age or the medicine, or both.
Summer will be busy and wonderful with 6 weeks of summer school, Saturday afternoon camp and daily morning activities at the beautiful Ashram where Bob and I both offer Seva.
Byron has an amazing life, surrounded by people who love him. He has lots to do, plenty of food, clothes, toys and he is safe. With all of the challenges children are facing around the world right now – we are so grateful for the life we lead, minor challenges and all.
