We’ve had 4 seizures since 10oclock, my tiny little fighter is being such a cuddle bug :( it’s nearly 1am, and most moms would be complaining their child is awake: not me. More cuddles. Just wish she felt better :(
Every kid should be this appreciative
fool loves bananas
Highly disappointed in my dash atm -_- tooooooo much mamadrama for mee.
"Look around you and look inside you. How many people do you think are settling? I will tell you: a hell of a lot of people. People are settling every day into okay relationships and okay jobs and an okay life. And do you know why? Because okay is comfortable. Okay pays the bills and gives a warm bed at night and allows one to go out with co-workers on a Friday evening to enjoy happy hour. But do you know what okay is not? Okay isn’t thrilling, it isn’t passion, it isn’t the reason you get up every day; it isn’t life-changing or unforgettable. Okay is not the reason you go to bed late and wake up early. Okay is not the reason you risk absolutely everything you’ve got just for the smallest chance that something absolutely amazing could happen."-Kovie Biakolo (via womanafterherownheart)

Anonymous said: Are her seizures genetic? Is Blaine likely to suffer with them too?
No not genetic, at least not from my side of the gene pool; so no Blaine will likely not have epilepsy. Sadly, they haven’t completely finished “diagnosing” her yet as she’s barely two and her epilepsy is still not fully at its peek if that makes sense, but they don’t believe it’s genetic.
I can’t speak for EriK’s family, but the only one with epilepsy in my family is my cousin Kristy and her epilepsy isn’t genetic either, hers was from being in the birth canal for 36 hours causing a stroke. Part of the front of her brain is completely dead. She’s still fully functional though, and even a fantastic single working mommy!
Luxxs epilepsy is a lot different. Her seizures come from all over her brain, different parts ect ect. They don’t know the cause of it, but she was in fact born with it. :/
Every seizure Luxx endures my heart sinks more and more. I get to these low spots where I feel like I’m failing beyond extreme measures by not being able to make them go away for good.
Every single seizure tears me to shreds.
Luxx has a new tick, I dont want to call it a seizure until I know for sure,she’ll be laughing and having a good time and then become unresponsive and hold her head for periods of 5-10 minutes each time. At first I brushed it off thinking okay, maybe too much excitement for her, or maybe she has a headache? But they are seeming to happen more and more, I’ll for sure be calling her neuro monday. :(
Entitlement has been a huge issue in our house lately. You can definitely tell that Eric and I were raised completely different.
