Seizure-Free and Talking
We have officially called it. Allie's first word is... CAT!
She has said "mama" and "dada" indiscriminately for months. When we ask her "Where is Mama?" she usually looks at me. The same for "Where is Dada?" But, she also calls the light Mama and the bathtub and bananas. Dada gets the lucky privilege of sharing his name with her pants and her diapers. My point is, she may know who Mama and Dada are but she doesn't do a very good job of discriminately saying them.
Cat, on the other hand, is a very different story. The cats come around and she shouts"Kkkkk.... dat!" Good enough for us.
Today also marks day #3 of no seizures. She has been on the medication regiment for Infantile Spasms since Monday and they seem to be working. Fingers crossed that things stay this way.
Allie's Gama (Bonnie), came to visit Allie this past Sunday-Wednesday. Her Papa (Tom) is coming in today. Allie is getting lots of love and support and we greatly appreciate it!
