Coughs and Sneezes!

Coughs & sneezes spread deseases...well aint that the truth!

It's not even winter yet and Coo's picked up a viral infection.
The seizures are through the roof yet again but I'm hopeful things will settle sooner rather than later this time!

I'm going training again, this time sessions on welfare rights.
I know it's a struggle and more work but it keeps my brain ticking over and stops me getting bogged down with our own issues.

I'm off for the first session today so we'll see how it goes.

Coo Houdini!

Well the last few days have been pretty eventful!

Coo's seizure activity is pretty high at the minute with 12 - 15 a day so it's pretty hard going, anyway, over the last few nights, he's managed to get out our bedroom before I could stop him, an escape Harry Houdini himself would be proud of!!

I can honestly say skydiving downstairs at three in the morning is not to be recommended!

Luckily he's not hurt himself but it's still pretty hairy-scary, at times!

I will try to speak to our O.T. again hopefully she's come up with something to help.

A Carer day out...

Well, thank goodness Looby stayed over last night!
All those seizures over the last few days were beginning to take a toll and I've been feeling a bit stretched the last few days.

I got a sleep last night and thankfully things are a bit brighter.

I've got a day out planned tomorrow with my local Carers Centre, I'm off to Loch Lomond shores, with 12 other Carers!
It's a long way on the coach but it's usually a fun time away!

I've come to the conclusion, days out on my own are rare as pearls and the 'Direct Payment' that enables me to pay for Looby to sit with Coo has really opened up new areas for me, previously I just wouldn't have been able to go at all!

A minor miracle - a service that truely works!!

Bad night....

We've had a bit of a sticky time overnight.
Coo's had lots of seizures, some only 30 minutes apart and we're both shattered!

This morning he seems to have developed a bit of a cough so that'll be the cause of it all and it's probably time for another anti-biotic run.

Well, I guess we're back to hard hat and flap jacket time again!
Hopefully it won't last for long this time.
