It's been 5 months since Crew's horrible grand mal seizure. I can't believe it's been that long. After the seizure I was terrified and started sleeping with Crew... just in case he had another one. Now we've developed bad habits. Crew has really gotten use to having me with him. I haven't had a good nights sleep since. The seizures are under control but the sleeping isn't! Crew is a strong-willed little boy and has been known to cry it out for hours. I always give in because it's easier and everyone sleeps better when mom gives in.
It has to stop.
After visiting Grandpa and Grandma on Sunday night we decided to leave S & H there overnight so we could bring Crew home and let him "cry it out". He fell asleep about 10:00 pm and woke at his usual midnight. After letting him cry for a bit I went in and reassured him then went back to my bed.... AND I DID NOT BRING HIM WITH ME! Now, aren't you proud of me!
He cried and cried for probably 4+ hours. Tonight, I've got S & H settled down on the couches and we are beginning night 2 of "THE END OF THIS PHASE"! Lets hope he figures this out quick because I need my sleep back!
After a beautiful sunny weekend we woke this morning to about 6 inches of snow! DH was working on the basement so I tackled the task of shoveling the driveway. It felt great! The sun was shining and everything felt calm and peaceful.
I put in a half day at work. Grandpa and Grandma brought S & H to the office. They watched a movie in the kids room as I was finishing up and then I brought them home. School starts up tomorrow. Tuesdays are crazy because I drive carpool and I have to get the 3 boys and myself ready by 7:45 am. Crew catches the bus at 8:00 and then I head off to work.
