SOOOO glad ACTH is OVER!!
I think it's almost safe to say the ACTH is in the past. Austin is actually sleeping at night again! So funny, I actually had to text Mom this morning to let her know how long he'd slept, because I almost couldn't believe it myself! He only got up once at 3:30 am, but it was a breeze. I ended up having to wake him at 11:30 so he could take his medicine! I forgot what a full night's sleep was like! I'm not used to that! I had a sudden burst of energy that I suddenly felt inspired to clean the house! Imagine that...
To add to the cheer of actually getting some sleep, it was probably 2:30 pm before I saw the first spasm from him too. Yesterday I think he topped out at 15 spasms...which is an improvement. It's about 9 pm now and I've counted 7 so far. Not bad...Crossing my fingers on this last increase on the dosage.
OT went great again today. Not anything major to tell you all, but she's impressed with the progress. I'm encouraged!
Let's pray for another restful night!!! :)
